At One with BuddhaKwazulu-natal, South africa

Join the Western world’s fastest growing religion at the Buddhist Retreat Centre near Durban in South Africa.

Perched on a ridge at the head of the picturesque Umkomaas Valley, the centre is testament to Buddhism’s pervasive reach since its birth in the Indian subcontinent more than 2000 years ago.

Choose from a multitude of spiritual retreats led by learned practitioners in their respective fields, whether it be tai chi, chi kung, yoga and Ayurvedic healing, spiritual healing, meditation or writing.
