solitary retreat
« on: December 18, 2019, 11:57:11 PM »
Hi  :)

anybody know where i can do a solitary retreat within a natural enviroment over the festive period 2019?

ive had quite a thorough look online..
im requesting if anybody here knows of or has a cabin/space in a secluded environment preferably in nature.

Background info:
new to the group.
27 male from Birmingham retreating to Hereford to do vipassana meditation regularly over the past several years.  Serious meditator that just needs to cut off from the mainstream this festive period.  If accepting money I have a max budget of £100.

Any offers / responses / ideas are very welcome.

Hi Santino,

The Barn retreat centre at Sharpham have a couple of Kuti's in the woods for solitary retreats. I'd be surprised if they aren't booked but worth a try. It's £165 for six nights at the reduced rate for low wage earners. You can do three nights or more. Details and contact on the link below.

Can you come to India? I'm sure there is no better place to meditate than India. If yes, feel free to contact me.
