Women’s Winter Retreat
Parami - Parami has been a member of the Triratna Buddhist Order since 1980. In that time she has led retreats and workshops in many parts of the world. Her particular interest in the Bodhisattva Ideal has shown itself in many ways, most recently in her exploration of socially engaged Buddhism, on retreat and in training with Joanna Macy.
Currently she lives at Adhistana in Herefordshire and the rest of the time visits Triratna Centres in the UK and elsewhere. She is involved with Triratna activities around the world, especially in Spanish-speaking Centres. She has been a private preceptor for some years and became a public preceptor in 2005.
Acharashraddha attended her first retreat at Dhanakosa in 1997 and immediately fell in love with this beautiful place. She attended retreats here regularly and also taught Yoga here for many years. In 2011 she was ordained and shortly after that joined the Retreat Leading Team. In March 2015 she came to live and work at Dhanakosa as Housekeeper.

This retreat is for Mitras in the Triratna Buddhist Community who wish to deepen their Buddhist practice and who have been on at least one week-long retreat.
