Family Retreat 2018-06-20T10:39:40+00:00

10th – 13th August 2018

This is a chance for your family to spend precious time together while exploring ideas of compassion, wisdom and kindness both within your family dynamic and beyond.

Activities include:

  • Exploring and discovering our spacious and beautiful surroundings on nature walks.

  • Arts and Crafts activities such as making your own prayer flags to help you consider positive qualities such as kindness and compassion.

  • Lots of time to relax and enjoy some fun and games.

  • Adult only time to reflect on family life. 

  • Age appropriate meditations 


Please note each family will be allocated their own room/dormitory depending on their size so parents nearly always need to share with their children. This also means the children will not be sharing with other children or adults.


The weekend will start with supper at six on the 10th and finish with lunch on the Monday. If you are travelling a long distance you are welcome to arrive the day before and leave the day after.


This weekend is offered as part of our usual generosity model. This means there is no specific charge for joining the weekend. However, as our annual running costs of approximately £50,000 are not subsidised by any other organisations, we request that people please be generous to the centre by making a donation. This enables us to keep our doors open, lights on and food on the table for those who visit.


If you would like to attend or have any questions please email spc@landofjoy.co.uk. Places are limited so book soon to avoid disappointment.

We very much hope to see you and your family soon!
