International Kadampa Buddhist retreat centre

We are a registered charity and based in a Victorian mansion built in the 1850s. Located in rural Derbyshire we are close to the Dales and Peak District. We have around 35 residents spread across the main building, apartments and houses. We are mixed community of ordained and lay people and families. We host around 5 - 15 volunteers. Our extensive grounds have 38 acres of gardens and parkland, with a small river and woodland walk. The environment is very beautiful, tranquil and restful and is perfect for meditation and reflection.

There are many local walks, a nature reserve and cycle paths. You can also access the Dales and Peak District National Park for days out. The city of Derby is just 8 miles away. Birmingham, Nottingham and Leicester are all within one hour travel.

It was a lovely experience at the Kadampa Derby centre, where I felt welcomed. Residents, visitors, and volunteers were kind and friendly. I participated in meditation and prayer classes, learning about the religion. I mainly worked in the kitchen but also in the garden and the café. The kitchen work was the most challenging due to the split shifts and numerous tasks. However, it was great for getting to know more residents. My suggestion for improvement is communication, as signs can be confusing; direct communication would be better. Overall, it was a very positive experience, thank you IKRC

I definitely would recommend volunteering here for those who are looking for a peaceful and restorative position and who are also curious about Buddhism. Work is either grounds, café, kitchen, or housekeeping and all of the work is pretty laid back although cafe can get busy at times! You are allowed to join any class/meditation that you aren’t working during. My fellow volunteers became very close and ill miss them and the residents/staff very very much 🫶🏼🫶🏼 xx

One of the most beautiful experiences I've had in my life. I carry with me the best memories of Kadampa, not only because it is a beautiful place but also because there I met those who are now my best friends. It is a special place, surrounded by nature and good people. I believe that is the essence: a place is special thanks to the people who inhabit it. I hope to return someday; I enjoyed this last month with you all very much.
Gracias 🫶🏻
