Covid-19: Activities Update

We have suspended most of our public activities in the interests of Public Health and are closely following the unfolding advice on the Corona virus from the UK Government and Public Health England.   Please check for any upcoming events we can offer. Also remember to take time for self reflection and meditation, as a calm mind is very helpful at such times.  Thank you for your continued support.


Since 1993, the Global Retreat Centre near Oxford has welcomed thousands of people from across the world. The Centre offers residential and one-day retreats, as well as lectures, seminars and courses on meditation, personal growth and spiritual development.

It is administered by the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University UK – a registered charity since 1975. Around the world the Brahma Kumaris work in local communities in more than 120 countries, teaching Raja Yoga Meditation as a way of life to experience peace of mind and a positive approach to life. Locally, our services are offered via an extensive network of professional trained volunteers, right in the heart of communities.

Thought for Today

Letting Everything Go Its Way

Everything that comes to us, comes to go: objects, relationships, problems. By letting everything go its way, there is no loss, only liberation. Just as the sun brings beauty and light, by enjoying everything for as long as it remains in our life, we learn to be present in the present.
