Weekend Rounding Retreat

Next Dates TBD


Residential Rounding Retreat at Commonwork

The dates for our next Weekend Rounding Retreat have been confirmed and we encourage you to make time for a few days of deep rest and purification. These weekends are extremely popular and sell out quickly. This is one of the best ways to fast-track your development—one weekend retreat can deliver the benefits of three to six months of regular twice-a-day meditation.

The Meditation Programme

The weekend centers on the process of ’rounding’. Rounding involves a simple sequence of yoga positions, or Asanas, that are easy to learn and can be practised by anyone, followed by a specific breathing technique called Pranayama. When this combination is added to your meditation the result is an ‘industrial-strength’ programme designed to enhance the restfulness of meditation and to release the deepest stresses.



The Lectures

One of the highlights of a weekend retreat is the opportunity to explore in more depth the knowledge that accompanies our meditation practice. These lively talks delve into practical topics like relationships, managing change, and finding balance in life.

The Venue

Less than an hour from London, Commonwork is a peaceful study centre and organic farm created in 1976 to explore sustainable living and working. The name Bore Place was first recorded in the 1300’s, with dwellings on the site since before Norman times.



The Meals

Delicious Ayurvedic vegetarian meals will be served, to support and enhance your meditation programme. Time shared socialising around the table is some of the most enjoyable of the weekend.


Anyone who has learned Vedic Meditation, regardless of experience level, is welcome.



Commonwork Organic Farm Bore Place, Chiddingstone, Edenbridge, Kent

I want to thank you for an amazing weekend. I have to say, it was nothing like I expected and has definitely brought me to a new space. I feel much more connected on the whole.

I never anticipated getting so much out of the retreat – the inspirational talks and open-ended discussions have challenged my views about a range of things and rounding has not only brought my meditations back on track but to a higher, more meaningful level. Thank you both for sharing so generously this incredible knowledge and for making it so easily accessible.
