Private Retreat Hut

Our private retreat hut is in a part of the woodland close to the main house overlooking the valley.

At the moment we have one hut ready for personal retreat. We start to build the second one in March/April 2020 and are hopefully able to offer you a place in our second retreat hut by late April beginning May 2020. If you want to contribute towards the completion of all three retreat hut you can do so here.

The retreat hut is equipped with a separate bathroom (shower), a small kitchenet (with a hot plate to heat up some food, a sink to wash dishes, a hot water kettle and toaster) and a large room with a single bed, a desk, an altar and meditation area and enough place to do full body prostrations (we also provide a prostration board).

Those doing personal retreat in the retreat hut will be provided with the following:

  • Three vegetarian meals per day (if needed we provide a food container and you can take your meals in the retreat hut)

  • A library of books and videos

  • Meditation cushions/boxes, water bowls and other retreat supplies

  • Help setting up your retreat if we have the knowledge required

  • Friendly staff who will respect your retreat silence and be available to provide logistical support to retreaters if needed

  • Laundry service during longer retreats

  • Help with shopping for your daily needs during longer retreats

  • Fire pujas

  • Dorje Khadro practice hut

Please note due to insurance reasons you can NOT cook meals in the hut, other than simply heating something up.

Also please be aware that if you come for a longer period of time it will be quite difficult for us to provide strict precept appropriate food as we have to cater for all the retreatants at the same time. But we will try our best to find a solution which suits you and the centre.

It is also important you are happy to following Land of Joy guidelines during your stay

  • No killing

  • Respect others’ property
