Meditation Day Retreat

Sun 20th Oct : 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

£15 – £45
Buddha statue detail

Our days can feel busy with many demands and little opportunity for stillness and simplicity. Join experienced meditators Amalacitta and Paranayaka for an opportunity to retreat from the world for a day. No phones, no emails and no demands from the people around you. Just a day of meditation and calm, together with space to explore how the Buddha’s teachings can help us lead a richer and more integrated life.

This day is open to those new to meditation, as well as those who already have a meditation practice.

Book Now


The price for the day is £45 standard rate / £30 concessionary / £15 age 18 – 25 and Helping our Centre rate. If the standard and concessionary rates don’t feel possible, then please choose the Helping our Centre rate, which is also for Order Members coming along in a supportive spirit. Payment still a problem? As a small unfunded charity, the Centre relies on the generosity of people who come here, but we don’t want to turn anyone away. Please contact the Centre Team on info@manchesterbuddhistcentre.org.uk and we’ll work something out with you.

Health Issues

If there are any health issues, physical, emotional or mental, that could affect your participation in a course or event, please contact the Buddhist Centre at info@manchesterbuddhistcentre.org.uk, and ask to talk confidentially to one of our Order members, before deciding whether to attend.
