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.

(Last updated on 5th March)

We have reviewed the current situation in the light of the latest government roadmap out of lockdown. Land of Joy will remain closed to group retreats, most likely until the end of June 2021.

As we are still in lock down, we unfortunately cannot offer personal retreats at the moment. We are considering whether we can accept people for personal retreat from the middle of April on, so please keep checking. We look forward to welcoming you all again before too long! In the meantime, we are very grateful for your supportive messages and kind wishes and we hold you all in our thoughts and prayers.

Stay well and safe, Jenny and the Land of Joy team
