Everything is taken care of for you...under one roof!

The 30 bedroom Peace Palace is situated in 'Maharishi Garden Village', a development of 60 dwellings, where all the buildings are also designed according to Maharishi Vastu - the most ancient form of Vedic architecture, yet with a delightful Suffolk 'rural/Georgian' style. It is a purpose-built ideal venue for courses, providing a permanent home of Pure Knowledge to honour Maharishi for generations to come.

The venue offers comfortable ensuite accommodation, delicious vegetarian food, spacious meeting rooms and Meditation hall where you can enjoy a variety of restful, enlightening courses in a supportive environment.

Maharishi Garden Village' is a unique development of 29 houses and 28 apartments built according to the timeless principles of Maharishi Vastu (Sthapatya Veda) - Vedic Architecture. more

What will you do on a TM Retreat?

As well as enjoying the company of your fellow course participants with delicious vegetarian meals and gentle walks and discussion, you will also enjoy extended sessions of Transcendental Meditation in a procedure called 'Rounding'.

This includes simple yoga postures (asanas), done without strain, and a breathing exercise (pranayama), which are demonstrated at the start of the course and are practised in cycles. This is done in the privacy of your own room or in an optional group setting, morning and late afternoon and the rest of the day is spent in the company of the other course participants and include group meditations and wonderful recorded talks by Maharishi chosen by your experienced course leader - in a restful schedule with no strain.  

Our courses are also open to those practising the TM-Sidhis, who enjoy an extended TM-Sidhi Programme in dedicated group facilities.

Is this your first TM Retreat?
A TM Retreat is one of the best things you can do to get established in your practice of Transcendental Meditation. We take great care of you and new concepts are explained fully and personal checking of your TM practice is available.

We recommend you have a TM check at your nearest TM Centre before coming on your first TM Retreat, and be regular in your practice. If you have not been in touch with your local centre in some time, just give us a call and have a chat with us about this.

What Course Participants say...

'MY SISTER AND I really enjoyed the weekend course at the Garden Village in May.  As usual the course was really great and the accommodation and food were excellent, but I didn't expect the profound effect the course would have on my TM practice once I returned home.  I feel as though my practice has been completely revitalised and I'm now back on track. I won't be leaving it so long before I visit again.' Karen House, 2014

‘UPON ARRIVING AT RENDLESHAM for my first residential course I was initially very pleased with the beautiful accommodation but aside from that I was unsure what to expect. What followed was a week's experience full of great people, interesting learning, really lovely food and perhaps most importantly plenty of laughter. So yes I really enjoyed my course that was full packed yet at the same time outrageously relaxing. Beautiful.' Tom Weston, Summer Course participant, August 2014

'ONE OF THE HAPPIEST periods in my life was on coming back from the first course I went on ... There was a feeling of freshness. I remember describing how I felt as being like a shiny new penny.'   John Joyce, Psychiatrist

'I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU and everyone for your kindness, hospitality and the wonderful food over the weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed my first residential course and have gone to work on a Monday morning with a spring in my step and a song in my heart which is most unusual!!' Rosie Rushton (March 2014)

John McHale

"THE COURSES AT RENDLESHAM are fast becoming an essential part of my yearly routine, allowing me to obtain total relaxation from a busy career. The time in the Vastu houses has an immediate effect on my body and enhances my sleep profoundly. The knowledge gained is always incredibly well structured and clear, but perhaps the thing that makes the courses most worthwhile is the fantastic food!" Young Meditators Course Participant, John McHale

"JUST HAD THE MOST AMAZING weekend enjoying the delights of Vastu Meditation at Maharishi Garden Village. Feeling divine and blissful, recharged with an abundance of positive energy. Now I'm ready for the world again!" Young Meditators Course Participant, David Verhoogt

"I THOUGHT the charts were really beautiful, easy to follow and very comprehensive. It was great that we had handouts of some of them as a reminder of what we'd heard. I especially liked all the anecdotes and stories that Raja Peter told because they made abstract concepts much more relevant and practical to our experience and understanding."
Total Knowledge Course Participant

"ROUNDING FOR A WEEKEND is pretty amazing, but doing it for a whole week is marvellous - one seems to sink deeper and deeper into lively silence- and afterwards I felt so bright" One-week Course Participant
