Covid-19: Activities Update

We have suspended our public activity including the Sanctary meditations 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 do continue to take time for self reflection and meditation, as a calm mind is very helpful at such times.  Thank you for your continued support.


We have recently been informed that land adjacent to Nuneham Park has been identified as a potential site for gravel extraction.
The proposed area, approximately 2km long and 1km wide, comes within about 400m of the GRC boundary.


At the moment we are closed and beavering away behind the scenes on essential renovations so you can enjoy this magnificent place again as soon as possible.
We are continuing events in venues nearby until approx winter 2020.

Here is a short video update on the works:


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.
