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.
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.
We are continuing events in venues nearby until approx spring 2021.

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.
Clean and Tidy
The most important places to keep clean and tidy are my mind and heart. If I allow thoughts to flourish that I wouldn't want to see the light of day, I can never have any real self-respect.
By starting each day in quiet reflection and pouring positive, loving thoughts into my mind, I gradually clean out cynicism and unkindness.
