New Year (Vedic Meditation) Retreat

with London Meditation Centre

2nd – 6th January, 2024

A remarkable start to 2024

The onset of a new year marks a critical juncture. It’s a period for introspection, revitalisation, and recalibration, laying the groundwork for the upcoming year.
A Vedic Meditation Retreat is the ultimate strategy to usher in the new year with energy, clarity and inspiration.

Purify, reset and invigorate at the deepest level

Master the art of rounding — a pivotal technique for purifying and realigning the nervous system. Stress and fatigue dissolve rapidly, fostering greater resilience, vitality and balance. The extended 5-day format allows for a deeper dive with even more profound effects.

Delve deeper into the wisdom of the vedas

During these five days you’ll enjoy the unique opportunity to be with Jillian and Michael and absorb their expertise in the Vedic teachings. Discover how to practically integrate this timeless knowledge to meet the challenges of modern life.

A special message from Jillian & Michael

We’re thrilled to offer this new year retreat. The start of the year marks a pivotal moment. Having the profound rest of the meditation programme, coupled with the transformative insights from the vedic knowledge, will be a ground-breaking start to 2024. And experiencing this in the remarkable setting of broughton sanctuary will be truly uplifting.

We look forward to sharing this time.

About Broughton Sanctuary

Rising Connected will be held at the 3000-acre Broughton Sanctuary, situated in the very centre of the UK, in the foothills of The Yorkshire Dales and one of the most picturesque parts of the country. Established in 1097, Broughton Hall has been home to the Tempest family for over 900 years and enjoys a rich history stretching back over the millennium. Surrounding the historic Broughton Hall are formal gardens studded with statues, ponds, parterres and fountains offering a glimpse of 18th century fashion all set against contemporary architecture making the location a truly unique experience. The Broughton Sanctuary is home to one of Britain’s most exciting nature recovery projects, with an extensive tree-planting and rewilding programme. Broughton is a place dedicated to the journey of coming home and rewilding the spirit.


About Avalon Wellbeing

Rising Connected will take place in Avalon, the UK’s leading, state-of-the-art wellbeing centre and beating heart of Broughton Sanctuary. This stunning building is based on biophillic (organic) design with sacred geometry and the Fibonacci incorporated throughout. During your stay, you will have the opportunity to experience the unique Pool Suite: a low-chemical swimming pool looking out onto the adjacent woodland, a sauna, a steam room and hydrotherapy pool. There are many places beyond the building itself in the Sanctuary grounds to return to source, from meditation labyrinths, wild swimming reservoirs, a cosmic garden and much more.
