LONG WEEKENDS with Sheffield Ashrams
At walking distance Ashram Community Homes in Sheffield.
Sheffield Ashram Long Weekends are designed to give an experience of 3-4 days of life together; enable people to come and stay in Ashram Community Houses; provide an opportunity to do practical work together; and be a place and time for people outside the community to come and experience our life together. Long Weekend programmes begin on Thursdays (or Fridays if more convenient for you) and go on until Monday afternoons.

As well as the planned retreats, Ashram welcomes people who would like to spend a day or two, or more, sharing Ashram life and staying at an Ashram house. These are inner city homes where individuals have their own bedrooms, but share all other facilities such as bathroom, kitchen, sitting room and cooking (vegetarians and vegans catered for).
