Greenstreete - The National Samatha Centre

Residential courses are offered at our national centre near Knighton in Mid Wales. Originally a Welsh hill farm, it was bought by the Samatha Trust in 1987. The house has been extensively renovated; a Meditation Hall has been constructed on the site of an old barn and a number of meditation huts built for those who would benefit from more solitude.

Gardens, woodland and a wetland area have been created. The farmhouse and Meditation Hall are surrounded by 88 acres of hills, woods and streams, providing varied and peaceful settings for meditation.
