Who We Are

A little bit about us

The Lighthouse Retreat Centre  is owned and operated by the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual Univeristy. The Brahma Kumaris teaches Raja Yoga as a way of experiencing peace of mind and a positive approach to life.

The University offers opportunities for anyone from all religious and cultural backgrounds to explore their spirituality and learn skills of reflection and meditation derived from Raja Yoga. All of our events and retreats are offered at no charge as a service to the community. We operate on the karmic philosophy that by giving selflessly and with compassion, we can be happy and inspire a positive way of being and living.

We recognise that in order to bring about change externally, we must first change ourselves by being kind and caring to the self. Through Raja Yoga, we learn to emerge and embody the inner qualities which help develop inner calm, clear thinking and personal well-being through inner discovery, meditative practices and conscious lifestyle choices.

The University is part of a worldwide network of over 8,500 centres in more than 100 countries, the first of which was founded in India in the 1930s. The BKWSU (UK) was established as a UK charity in 1975 and charges no fees for any of its activities, being funded entirely by voluntary contributions.
