Carers Overnight Retreat

The Carers overnight retreat is a great opportunity for carers to get away and switch off for a couple of days. The retreat is provided by Breathing Space, a project run by London Buddhist Centre and it is based at their bespoke retreat centre situated in the beautiful Suffolk countryside. Carers can take part in meditation and other group sessions, or just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings.

Travel is provided, with a coach leaving from and returning to, the Buddhist Centre in Roman Road. All meals are provided, meals are vegetarian and suitable for people who have religious diet restrictions (halal, kosher etc). 2 retreats are run over 1 week; Monday- Wednesday and Wednesday-Friday. 4 retreats per year are provided in total.

We are currently working with the Breathing Space to see if it will be possible to restart the retreats in light of the pandemic. Due to the current uncertainty caused by the pandemic we do not have a date for the next retreats. Please keep an eye on our calendar and newsletter for more information.

If you would like to attend a retreat please contact us on 0207 790 1765 or and we can put your name on the waiting list.

Day Trips

The Carers Centre also provides regular day trips. These could be to the seaside, or a  Christmas market, or even to one of the wonderful parks we have in the capital.
