Kilnwick Percy Hall has been the home to Madhyamaka Kadampa Meditation Centre for over 30 years. Based in Pocklington, near York, the Centre offers a wide range of facilities to learn about meditation and modern Buddhism, as well as to relax and unwind.
You can come to a lunchtime meditation class and pop into the World Peace Cafe – a cute vegetarian cafe with beautiful views in a tranquil setting – as well as visit the Gift Shop and explore the exquisite meditation rooms. Or you can book a longer stay in our guest accommodation and settle into the relaxing atmosphere for a relaxing retreat.
The Centre functions through the great kindness of many volunteers – both from the local area and staying as a volunteer visit.
The ground floor of the main building, including the meditation rooms and gift shop, as well as the World Peace Cafe, are wheelchair accessible.
Madhyamaka KMC is open 10.30am – 4.30pm seven days a week, almost every week of the year. However it will be closed during the annual International Spring (late May bank holiday weekend), Summer (two weeks around the early August bank holiday weekend) and Fall (October) Festivals which are held elsewhere. The exact dates of these Festivals are available here: http://kadampafestivals.org/ Please do check these dates if you are planning a visit during these times.
Everybody is welcome and we look forward to welcoming you soon! 🙂
