Booking (by filling out the booking form) is essential as there are limited number of spaces available.

This retreat is offered on a Dana (donation) basis only.

To participate it is necessary to attend the entire retreat.

Ajahn Candasiri

Ajahn Candasiri is Scottish by birth and was one of the first nuns to be ordained by Ajahn Sumedho at Chithurst Monastery in 1979. Having been raised as a Christian, she continues to appreciate contact with contemplative Christians and with those of other faiths. Recognizing the immense benefit, both for herself and others, that can come about through a life of renunciation, she has actively participated in the evolution of the nuns’ training and in providing opportunities for women to experience this form of practice. For much of her monastic life she has been resident at either Cittaviveka or Amaravati Monasteries. Currently, she resides at Milntuim Hermitage, a small monastery in Perthshire, Scotland that has been established for nuns of this tradition.
