National Under 35s Retreat

Starts 15 Apr 2022

The stupa at Sudarshanaloka

An Easter practice retreat for young people

Easter 2022 will be an opportunity for people under 35 years old to come together on retreat.

Whether you're new to Buddhism or well-versed, you're welcome to join us. Going on retreat is the best way to get a real taste of the freedom the Buddhist path offers. Sudarshanaloka (in the Coromandel hills) is wildly spectacular, and presents a great opportunity to get back to nature, spend time with others interested in what Buddhism has to offer, and ditch your devices for a long weekend!

We'll publish more details about the theme in February 2022, but for now, book your space or at least save the date.

Vaccine passports will be used for this retreat. Read about the retreat conditions here.
