Three Annual Festivals

There are three International Festivals each year:

Enjoy a summer holiday with a difference. Spend some inspiring time in the English Lake District with people from all over the world developing inner peace through the practices of modern Buddhism.

Week 1 ~ July 25 – 31

Week 2 ~ August 1 – 9
BUDDHA AVALOKITESHVARA EMPOWERMENT

You can attend either week of the Festival or both together – or come for just a few days. Both weeks are open to everyone and suitable for all levels. If you have not been to a Summer Festival before, Week 1 might be a good place to start.
