Our Events and Activities
Events and Activities
Throughout the year, HaMakom runs a number of residential Jewish mindfulness mediation retreats.
Our next residential retreat for adults will be from 7 May – 10 May, 2020.
We are currently looking into the possibility of a multi-generational retreat that would include activities for young children – please do let us know if that is something you would be interested in.
HaMakom also runs a program of urban day retreats, workshops, classes (both online and in person) and talks, which address many of the problems of modern (Jewish) life and support us in our spiritual development and unfolding. We apply mindfulness to help us improve our stress levels, develop our sense of community, and grow our awareness of ourselves as spiritual beings.
St Cassian's Centre
Our retreats are held as St Cassian’s Centre in Kintbury, West Berkshire. The heart of the centre is the old manor house, which dates from the sixteenth century. The house is set within picturesque landscaped gardens and offers a quiet atmosphere perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle of modern life.
The centre is owned and run by a Catholic organisation, which kindly welcomes HaMakom to enjoy the contemplative space which they have preserved.
St Cassians, Kintbury is approximately two hours drive from London, and four hours drive from Manchester. The nearest train station is Hungerford.
The address of St Cassians is: Wallingtons Rd, Kintbury, Hungerford RG17 9SR.
