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.

Welcome

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.

Here is video detailing progress of the refurbishment

Take a look at the glorious grounds! Come and experience for yourself – current covid guidelines permitting of course.

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.

Thought for Today

Choose Feelings

If your days seem filled with unwanted negative feelings, there is only one cure. When they come, choose them. Don't ask why, don't wonder how, don't fight them and never put yourself down for having them. But most of all never blame someone else for how you feel. If you do, it means you are still fast asleep and your choice is to be a victim.

When the feelings come, even big disturbing emotional feelings say, "I choose this feeling" and know it comes because of something you have thought or done in the past, perhaps a certain belief that you have learned or an attachment that is threatened.

Choice does not mean you want the feelings, but it does mean you are taking responsibility for them. And that is the beginning of self mastery. It is the first step to the healing and resolving of your emotions. But only the first step. Try this today and then ask yourself what the next step might be. If you are really interested to know, you will come to know!
