If you have any questions, please email us at:
1st November - 17th December (45-day course at Dhamma Padhana )
This is where you can book your seat for the coach to Dhamma Padhana.
Please note that booking is closed at 10am on the day before the course starts. If you have not booked a ticket by then, you will have to use a local bus or taxi.
The coach to Dhamma Padhana will be leaving Gloucester railway station at 3.30pm. The driver will be standing outside the coach with a 'Vipassana Meditation' sign. If the numbers are low for this course, it will be a taxi rather than a coach. You will need to show the driver a copy of your ticket.
If you miss the coach, you can get to the centre by taking the local buses number 33 or 32 via Ross-on-Wye towards Hereford. Ask to be let off at Harewood End Inn. The centre car can come to meet this bus and take you to the centre. Call 01989 730234 as soon as possible to arrange this.
Gloucester coach station is a short (100m) walk from the railway station.
At the end of the course, the return journey leaves the centre at 9.00am and arrives at Gloucester railway station at 10am. The fare for the two-way ticket is £13 which you pay online using either a credit or debit card, or a PayPal account. Please note that in some locations you may need to click on a message like 'No PayPal account?' or 'Don't have PayPal account' to pay with a credit/debit card. If there is still no suitable option please contact us.
If the bus time is inconvenient, then for the return journey to Gloucester after your course you can also share a local taxi at a different time with other people at a preferential rate . More information will be put up on the last day of the course, so you will be able to make arrangements then. However, no refund is given for the unused return part of your coach ticket.
