Overview retreats in English in 2019 organized by Sangha Metta

If the retreat-location is not explicitly mentioned, the location will be ITC Naarden.


When the retreat-schedule is definite, there is a link >>to retreat>> on this page for more info and registration.
Sangha Metta organizes Vipassana retreats throughout the year.
There are 5 periods. Each roughly 1 month. In the Dutch schedule you can view all retreats. In thís schedule only the English spoken retreats are mentioned.
 You are welcome to the other retreats as well but we can not offer translation into English.

During 2019 there will be building activity on the grounds of ITC Naarden. The ‘Arundale’ building will be replaced by a new building. Our program will be realized on the same location using other buildings. As a consequence of the new building, prizes for the Sangha Metta retreats will have to be raised. The cost for the 2019 retreats is not determined yet.




As a rule, a retreat ends after lunch at 13:00, but at 11:30 when the next retreat starts the same day at 16:00 and people come in from 14:00.
Other possibilities are:
1. next retreat start next day at 16:00
2. next retreat starts same day after evening meal, with coming in from 16:00. There is only a start talk without a dhammatalk.
