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.

For now, we will remain closed to group retreats until the end of September. However, personal retreats are possible under certain circumstances. The board and team will continue to monitor and review the situation to decide what happens from the beginning of October onwards.

The team have settled into a new rhythm, finding new ways of reaching out to you, keeping up with all the usual tasks and preparing for being able to welcome you back again before too long! As always we are very grateful for all your ongoing support. Stay safe and well. The Land of Joy Team
