The Buddhist House is located in the Leicestershire village of Narborough. On the edge of the urban area, it offers a rich combination of environments for the Ten Directions Training Programme. The house has a substantial garden with trees, small meeting areas, and wild spaces. This garden offers privacy and we have a fire pit at the far end. There are also within walking distance a number of different venues which each provide habitats suitable for environmentally-based therapy. Among these, are Thorpe Meadows, a semi-wild area of floodplain with access to ponds, rivers, grasslands and trees; Narborough Bog, an SSSI noted for its wetland habitat and numerous species of flora and fauna; Narborough Park, a typical suburban green space, with children’s play areas, open grass and trees; several old cemeteries, open fields, a disused railway which has been developed as a footpath, and a number of small pockets of woodland and scrub. This combination allows participants to explore the theoretical base of the programme, experimenting with activities suitable for use with therapeutic and community groups in their own localities. The house itself is the centre for Tariki Trust and its courses, and offers accommodation at various levels, including a wooden hut in the garden which can be used for sleeping.
Travel to The Buddhist House is easy by bus, train or car. Accommodation is booked separately at a discounted rate.
