The headquarters of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness in the UK, Bhaktivedanta Manor offers a range of residential and day courses based upon the teachings of the Vedas, India’s ancient Sanskrit writings. In the many workshops and courses conducted throughout the year, you can learn about yoga, meditation, Ayurveda (holistic living), vegetarian cookery, Vastu (the ‘Indian Feng Shui’), Vedic astrology and much more. You will meet people from all walks of life who share one thing in common, a desire to find greater fulfilment and a deeper meaning to life.

The Manor lifestyle is encapsulated by the maxim ‘Simple living, high thinking’. It is a serious spiritual community and long term residents are committed to a disciplined daily programme. Guests are always welcome to stay for short periods to try it out at a more relaxed level, although most find the regular Manor programme uplifting and energising, and often want to come back for more.

Visitors frequently express appreciation of the Manor’s enchanting atmosphere, its spiritual vigour and its radiant peace and joy. Situated in 80 acres of beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, yet less than 20 miles from central London, it is a tranquil oasis where you can escape the stresses and strains of modern living, and perhaps even find yourself at the same time.
