Kairos Centre is a Christian nuns’ monastery, with an atmosphere naturally conducive to deep inner reflection and peace. We encourage visitors to hold the space as guests with quiet respect. Set in this very special, spiritual place overlooking Richmond Park, this retreat provides a wonderful opportunity to cultivate a still and happy heart, guided by self-proclaimed ‘meditation junkie’ Ajahn Brahm.


The retreat consists of silent meditation practice, Dhamma talks, guided meditations, and opportunities for questions and answers. The schedule will be relaxed and flexible and you will have use of the main hall, lounge and grounds, as well as the beautiful chapel within the building for extra solitude.


Residential bookings (with two night’s accommodation) on this retreat are offered especially for our European friends and those travelling from further afield in the UK. Residential guests will receive three cooked vegetarian lunches and two breakfast, but no evening meals. If you have a medical condition which requires you to eat in the evenings, you are welcome to bring something with you which does not require cooking, such as a flapjack or a sandwich to eat discreetly. Hot drinks will be served three times a day.
The retreat starts at 9.30am on Monday 16th October and goes on until around 9.30pm that evening. There is an optional early morning sit (or lie in!) the following days and retreat ends on Wednesday 18th October at around 5.30pm.


Shared rooms will be allocated on a same-sex basis and residential retreatants will able to check into their bedrooms at 2pm on 16th October. Guests must check out on the last day of the retreat at 10am, but you can keep your belongings in the foyer (travel light!).
