Photos of retreats at Adhisthana

Join us on our annual Manchester Sangha Retreat as we gather in large numbers at Adhisthana, the magnificent home of our movement, set in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside. This is a fantastic opportunity to come together as a sangha, in rural surroundings, deepening our connection to each other and the Three Jewels.

Adhisthana is a beautiful and spacious venue which roots us in the wider history of the Triratna Community, with Sangharakshita as our founder and teacher. Adhisthana means Blessings – join us as we experience the blessings of history, lineage and friendship.
