The first Thursday will present Fundamentals of Buddhism, the other Thursdays will have varying topics depending on the host. A meetup for people interested in Buddhist meditation practice who desire more intensive training in the form of day-long or weekend retreats or retreats of longer duration in a safe, friendly, and supportive environment. Vajraloka Buddhist Meditation Centre (founded in 1979) is one of the foremost meditation retreat centres in the UK. If you are looking for a meditation retreat in supportive conditions, take a look at our programme.
Situated beautifully amidst the gently rolling hills of North Wales, Vajraloka has now been running retreats for over 30 years.


The retreat centre is run by a team of Buddhist practitioners, each with many years experience of meditation, and of running Buddhist meditation retreats. Our travel page will give you full instructions on how to find us as well as a map showing our location. Many of us have our individual daily practices but know that longer retreats can add a transformative dimension to practice with incalculable benefits for ourselves as well as our communities. The focus at Vajraloka isĀ  the practice and teaching of meditation, with the aim of awakening to the true nature of things, the ultimate goal of Buddhism.
To see what some of our guests have to say about Vajraloka, please visit our comments page.


Retreats are in the Classical, Theravadan or Secular Buddhist tradition but we're open to other meditation traditions. Beginners to advanced meditators as well as the merely curious are all welcome to the meet-up but practitioners are advised to consider whether their practice can sustain the rigors of the individual retreats.
