We hold regular events and retreats at The Hermitage. Our meditation days are open to all. Click on the links below for more information and to book. Our events are offered on a donation basis to make them accessible to all.
We often record our teaching events, so have a wealth of material from previous events. Visit our YouTube channel to view our recordings. Our members also have access to a huge archive of audio and visuals, as well as online courses that enhance our study programmes.
