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. 

Thought for Today

Unlimited Happiness

Constantly have a happy face and remain healthy with the nourishment of happiness and full of the treasures of happiness.

What more does one need? Your treasures of happiness are unlimited. The more you spend, the more they increase.

No matter what happens, whether it is through the state of one's own mind, through other souls or through the elements or atmosphere, I must not loose my happiness. Even if someone insults you or tries to bring you down, remember this, I must remain happy.
