Located in Northumberland National Park, Land of Joy is a peaceful, residential retreat centre, operating in harmony with its natural surroundings. We aim to continue to provide a peaceful and supportive environment where anyone can come to attend our buddhist or non-buddhist events.

"Buddhist meditation doesn't necessarily mean sitting crossed-legged with your eyes closed. Simply observing how your mind is responding to the sense world can be a really perfect meditation and bring a perfect result" - Lama Zopa Rinpoche
