New Retreat Centre - Suryavana - Masía Novales

This is the retreat centre associated with the Valencia Buddhist Centre, a space dedicated exclusively to meditation and Dharma practice. A country house up in the hills some 60 km to the North West of Valencia. It is situated in a delightfully hidden corner, surrounded by arable olive and almond trees as well as pine and oak woodlands. Much love and care has gone into creating an ideal place to practice.

The twelve day Module 2 is run in Solterreno near Alicante in the autumn. Other one week retreats and courses are organised here as well as at Dhanakosa in Scotland, and other venues like
Abhayaloka in Finland, Dharmagiri in Sweden or workshops in London, Brighton and elsewhere.

Splitting the 200 hour teacher training in two parts

For various reasaons some studetns find it difficult to get away for three weeks continuously. To make our course accesible we offer the course as two weeks training up to the Practice Day one year, combined with the third week of Teaching Practice the following year.
The teacher training would be spread over a year with coursework happening between trainings. 
The dates run
Part One 23 June - 7 July 2017 ( 14 days)
Part Two 29 June - 6 July 2018 (7 days)
