Christian (and Buddhist)

Early in 2016, the Chichester Contemplative Prayer Group held a day on Christian and Buddhist meditation. 

Here are links to some of the websites they recommended:

Places to practise/learn meditation from the Buddhist perspective


Anyone is welcome to make a retreat at Amaravati Buddhist Monastery,


The more local Chithurst Buddhist Monastery doesn't have such facilities. 

However there is a guided meditation offered on Sunday evenings 7:30pm, 

and if one has questions there is a monk available over tea on Sundays at 5pm.


But the greatest range of opportunities for Buddhist silent retreats 

with or without teaching is Gaia House in Devon

followed by a spiritual reading and discussion, and then tea and cake
