About the Global Retreat Centre at Nuneham House

Since 1993, the Global Retreat Centre at Nuneham House (administered by the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University UK) has welcomed thousands of people from across the world. They come to restore balance and focus to their life through solitude, silence and the study of spiritual values.

Tucked away in the rolling countryside of Oxfordshire just outside of Oxford, surrounded by 55 acres of historical gardens and overlooking the river Thames, Nuneham Park is the perfect location to step away from the frantic pace of modern living to rediscover your inner peace and power.

The events range from residential retreats to talks and courses for grassroots workers in the community to dialogues for leading thinkers on international and environmental issues.

All aim to provide insights and experiences into the basics of meditation and the application of values. Whatever your reason for visiting, you will find a warm welcome, a calming and unpretentious atmosphere, and sensitive and experienced speakers.

Step aside from the stresses of your daily life and spend an afternoon and evening in the beautiful gardens of the newly refurbished Global Retreat Centre.
