United Kingdom Vipassana Retreat

United Kingdom – Vipassana Retreats


A few times a year Rising Falling will organise a Vipassana retreat in the United Kingdom. We do select our venues for their beautiful locations, quiet surroundings and ideal settings for small groups.

Venue Dorrington

In November 2023 we will organize a retreat in Dorrington. Located midway between the county town of Shrewsbury and Church Stretton in the village of Dorrington. A beautiful Home Farm House, where you will find historical features that are quintessential to English sophistication.
The garden is enclosed.
The bedrooms are spacious and therefor give you plenty of room to practice. Also the living room as well as the conservatory provide space to meditate.
You can also take a stroll around the beautiful gardens to exploring the woodlands and countryside.

Price for a Private Room is £675-.

Vipassana retreat United Kingdom

The retreat will start on the 11th of November, arrival time between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm. And it will finish on the 18th of November 10:00 am.

You can find the programme for the Vipassana retreat on this website. With the difference that we get up at 5:00 am during the retreat in the UK.

The group will be small; between 6 and 8 people.
And every day there will be time for you to report to the teacher about your experiences and get further guidance in the meditation.

Therefore we can recommend this Vipassana retreat for people with no experience in meditation as well as for people with a lot of experience. In the evening there will be group meditations and Dharma talk, where the teacher will tell a story or talk about experiences to give you more insight into the meditation technique.
Vipassana meditation will give you more clarity, insights and silent friendships.
If you need a real break from everything, or if you do not know what your next step in life will be, a Vipassana might help you.
