At New Lands Retreat Centre we hold a variety of retreats, residential courses and events throughout the year. Retreat information is given below. Use the calendar, or view our Retreats and Activities Brochure for 2019
Retreats and Weekends
We run retreats and weekend retreats at New Lands which are open to all. We also offer some open to members of the White Eagle Lodge.
All retreats are on specific themes relating to the White Eagle teachings.
Each retreat involves some time for discussion, for private contemplation or study, as well as daily guided meditation.
New Year retreat
Saturday January 19 to Wednesday 23 with Jenny Dent
Give yourself a New Year present of 'time out' from the often grey days of January. Come to New Lands to be nurtured in a happy family atmosphere, and relax in its peace and beauty with like minded companions. Jenny will lead times of quiet contemplation and meditation in the chapel, as well as happy relaxed sharing in the lounge. A 'one to one' time with Jenny for each participant will be included in the programme.
(Includes the New Year Thanksgiving Service on Sunday 20 and an afternoon talk 'Making New Year Resolutions — linking with your zodiac angel and soul lesson to fulfill your life goals'.
'The Angelic Presence in our Lives'
Friday evening March 22 to Tuesday 26 (after breakfast) led by Anna Hayward
White Eagle says: 'You are surrounded by angels. You may not be able to see them, but you may be able to feel them. They are with you, in the quiet of your own innermost being.' In the atmosphere of New Lands, where the veil between the worlds is more transparent, we will explore ways to be more aware of their presence and to understand our relationship with them.
'Love one another' – the art of relationship
Saturday July 20 to Thursday July 25 led by Rozita and Frank Hansen
Together we explore what the meaning of relationship can be in our modern time and how it can influence our spiritual growth.
Saturday October 12 to Thursday 17 led by Colum Hayward
Spiritual people are often encouraged to open their hearts rather than their minds. Although this helps to correct an imbalance, the mind is important to us all – as the ancients said, we need a healthy body and a healthy mind. This retreat looks at ways of keeping the mind flexible and aware in a way that derives directly from White Eagle’s teaching. Colum Hayward is joined by Aggie Forster, an educator whose origins are in the field of outdoor learning, so there will be plenty of connection with the beautiful world of nature on this retreat. Cost: £425
Christmas House Party 2019
Friday evening December 13 to Tuesday 17 (after breakfast) with Jenny Dent and Colum and Jeremy Hayward.
Incorporating the magic of the Festival Carol Service on the Sunday (see p 12), this is a time for you to relax and experience renewal of body, mind and inner awareness of the Christ light, alongside enjoying laughter and fun with like-minded people in a party atmosphere. Cost: £340.
Discussion Day 'What does the White Eagle Teaching mean to us?'
Saturday June 1: led by Jan de Vulder. We will explore the transforming power of creative thought and service using the White Eagle teachings.

Discussion Day 'Death and Rebirth'
Saturday October 26 led by Simon Bentley. With the Temple about to be pulled down and rebuilt, and thus much change happening around us locally as well as globally, this seems to be the best of all possible times to contemplate this important matter.
