We are delighted to offer a retreat with the monastic community of Thich Nhat Hanh in August 2017 at Stourbridge. The retreat is suitable for all ages and for all those interested in practising mindfulness, whether you have previous experience or not.
General Enquiries and Changes To Bookings
For general enquiries, please check the FAQs first before contacting us. If you need to make changes after your payment is confirmed then contact us directly as it will not be possible to do this online - so please take care and check form before confirming payment.
Group and Family Bookings
If you wish to have adjacent accommodation, for instance if coming as a family, then you will need to book as a group. To do this, please book yourself first followed by other group members. You will pay together as a group at the end of the booking process, with your confirmation email having a link to an itemised receipt. To add a group member after your initial booking please follow the link in the confirmation email that we will send to you.
If you are a parent booking for yourself and one child please book a twin room and not a dormitory, unless you are willing to share with another family, in which case please let us know their names on your booking form. A limited number of dorms with 6-8 beds are available for different families to share. Please let us know if you are happy to use these.
If you are booking an en-suite twin room for yourself and one child then please ensure you also make an en-suite booking for your child.
If you are booking for more than two people, (eg two or more adults and a child or one adult with two or more children) please make sure you book a dormitory. We cannot accomodate more than two people in a twin room. We are sorry, but there are no en-suite dormitories at the venue.
Guide Dogs, Special Access Needs and People With Disabilities
For those with disabilities coming with a personal assistant, you will need to book as a group to ensure adjacent accommodation. For arrangements regarding guide dogs or special access needs, please email.
There is a bursary fund for this retreat. Please ensure you apply for a bursary before booking as we cannot guarantee to offer a bursary retrospectively. Information about this can be found in the FAQs. If you are eligible for this and would like to apply, please email us with your scanned relevant documents or post them to Miracle of Mindfulness Bursary Application, 44 Main Street, Sudborough, Kettering, Northants NN14 3BX. On receipt of confirmation from us that your bursary application has been successful, you will be able to book online (preferred) or by post.
The venue is a boys’ boarding school with adequate yet basic accommodation. Most of the toilets and showers are in communal blocks. The rooms are simply furnished and without lockable doors. Single rooms include a single bed and mattress, wardrobe, desk, table and light. Twin rooms or dormitories include the same furnishings multiplied up. Each house has kitchen facilities although not necessarily on each floor.
