Adhisthana is excited to offer the opportunity for order members & mitras in our Triratna community to visit and spend time at Adhisthana. This is an opportunity for stillness, meditation, study, beauty, and devotion with the freedom to follow your own threads of inspiration. During your stay at Adhisthana basics needs such a food & heating will be taken care of, leaving you free to enjoy the conditions on offer here. You can take advantage of our beautiful gardens, Bhante’s burial mound, plenty of space and the opportunity for country walks. The Adhisthana Community will be around on site, but you will be left to focus on solitary pursuits, amidst the currently quiet life of Adhisthana.
To comply with current regulations, you will be in a single room with your own wing of the retreat centre with a tea bar/kitchenette, and private bathroom. We ask that you please bring your own bed linen (single sheet, single duvet cover, two pillow cases). You will be provided with lunch and dinner from the retreat kitchen as well as food for breakfast and snacks. If you have a restricted diet, please admin [at] adhisthana.org (email us) to see if we can cater for you. You will have your own fridge to store any supplementary items you may need, and self-catering is also an option where facilities allow. Please note all solitary spaces require use of stairs for access.
If you would like to read a book from our lending library, then let us know before you arrive and it will be waiting for your in your room. Want to know what’s available? Check out this link: Dharma Library
During your week you can request a practice review to support your solitary. You can request the review before or during your stay and we’ll do our best to arrange it for you depending on availability. Reviews will be conducted by Saddhanandi, Bodhiketu, Dhammarati, Ratnadharini, Saddhaloka, Shubhavyuha or Lokeshvara.
On request we can provide maps, walking boots (even walking sticks) for a range of country walks from a leisurely stroll to a hike up the Malvern Hills in under two hours for the more adventurous.
If you’d like to get your hands dirty you’re welcome to ask if you can help out with some gardening as a way of relaxing and giving energy to the beauty of Adhisthana.
Although no longer a ‘solitary’ you’re welcome to share your retreat as each space is able to comfortably accommodate multiple people. It’s a great way to spend time other others and explore your practice together. Email the office to discuss pricing.
We are taking bookings for a minimum of one week at £295 per week, beginning and ending on a Friday. Any additional weeks are at the discounted rate of £200.
If you wish to come on retreat with someone, please get in contact with us for pricing.
