The Spiritual Care team offers support through listening and companionship and guidance in meditations and contemplations which are helpful for stress, anxiety, grief or pain. While these practices come from the Buddhist tradition they are universally meaningful, suitable for beginners and don’t involve difficult postures or complicated techniques.

There is no fee for support offered at The Care Centre. Guests on Care Breaks are invited to make a donation according to their means. Financial assistance is available (on application) to help cover accommodation costs for guests on limited incomes.

The Spiritual Care team offers planned Care Breaks for guests who are;

  • facing long-term or life-limiting illness
  • grieving the loss of a loved one
  • living with a disability
  • needing a break from being a carer
  • experiencing difficulties in relationships
  • experiencing stress or burn-out.

We use the word ‘spiritual’ to describe needs which we all share, whatever our beliefs;

  • to love and make an authentic connection with others
  • to understand and transform suffering
  • to rely on a refuge or source of peace
  • to find a meaning in life.
