Retreats & Courses at Land of Joy

Land of Joy offers a range of introductory, next step, advanced and secular retreats through most of the year. Please click on any retreat of interest to learn more about it and book your place.

Personal retreats or private stays are sometimes possible, but currently need to fit around group retreats happening at the centre due to limited accommodation options.

Please be aware retreats might be cancelled up to two weeks prior to the event due to lack of numbers or other reasons. It is also possible they will be re-arranged if we have the chance to host a high lama, so please keep this in mind when booking transport.
