Solitary Retreats

After you have been meditating for some time you might feel ready to go on a solitary retreat. Solitude provides an extraordinary opportunity to explore your mind; these retreats are often highly significant and life-affirming experiences. If you’re unsure of whether a solitary retreat is for you or not, we would advise talking with your teachers or friends, or calling us on 0208 709 9978.

We have two identical huts at our retreat centre, Vajrasana:  Han Shan and Ryokan. Each hut for retreats in 2024 costs £295 (full) or £230 (concession) per week, running Friday to Friday, with basic foods provided. Click here for more information (including food list, facilities and travel instructions).

To book, please check below for the availability of the week/s you're interested in and then call us on 0208 709 9978 (10am-5pm weekdays). Please note that a booking is not confirmed until the full amount has been received and that we do not take deposits for solitary retreats.

Booking Conditions:
Solitary retreats must be paid for in full at the time of booking. If a solitary retreat is cancelled more than two months before the start date, a full refund will be given minus a £10 administration fee. If cancelled more than one month before the start date, a 50% refund will be given. If cancelled less than one month before the start date, no refund will be given. For single week bookings we can't guarantee which of the huts you'll be in, though we can make a note of your preference if you have one.
