This meditation centre is set in 38 acres of beautiful Derbyshire park land. Many visitors come here to enjoy the grounds, meditation room, café and shop. The Centre promotes the development of inner peace, compassion and wisdom.

If you are interested, while you are with us, you will be able to attend our meditation classes and courses for free where these do not conflict with the working day (we have several evening classes and lunchtime meditations).

Whilst you are here you can enjoy volunteering in the Vegetarian Café, grounds, kitchen, doing some decorating, building and other activities.
We have people living and volunteering from all over the world here. It is a warm and vibrant place with plenty of opportunity to make friends and learn new skills.

In return for 5-6 hours working per day, we offer accommodation (male and female dormitory) and food.

As a Buddhist community, we ask that you abide by our philosophy whilst in the Centre which means abstaining from eating meat, drinking alcohol, playing music out loud and smoking on the premises. This helps to create a conducive environment for meditation.

Please message us via the Helpx site.

The centre is located about a 15 minute bus ride from the centre of Derby, and about 1.5 hours by bus from the Peak District, a national park which offers opportunities for walking, cycling and climbing. We are 2 hours from London.
