how to book
In order to book on a retreat we require a booking fee of £100 (for week long retreats) or £75 (for weekend retreats).
Most of our retreats are fully booked, in order to give the opportunity for as many people as possible to come to Dhanakosa we ask that you book no more than four week-long retreats per year. You can go on the waiting list for more retreats.
Due to high demand for single rooms, which are very limited, we ask that people booking a single (when available) book no more two week-long retreats a year with a single room.
Please note that our retreats are for people aged 18 and over only.
Go to retreat calendar and choose the retreat you would like to book on. Once on the page for the retreat, you will find a button that says Make Booking. Click this and fill out the booking form, and you will be able to pay the booking fee via Paypal using a credit/debit card.
Please note that if you book via our online booking form, do not book travel until you receive booking confirmation from us, as we need to confirm spaces are available.
To pay by post cheques should be made payable to Dhanakosa, and be sure to include your contact details and information about which retreat you are booking for.
Please phone our office (10am to 5pm Monday thru Friday) to pay over the phone using a credit/debit card.
If you cancel a retreat booking it will be possible to receive a refund or transfer the booking fee to another retreat within 12 months, provided you give us at least 1 month’s notice from the start of the retreat you are cancelling. After which booking fees are only transferable under special circumstances. See our full cancellations, and transfers policy here.
waiting list policy
When a retreat is full we will add people to a waiting list without taking a booking fee. A waiting list is simply our way of noting that you are interested in attending a given retreat.
When a space becomes available on a retreat we will email all the people on the waiting list and also indicate on our website that the retreat has space and to call to book. We will give the space to the first person who calls and places a booking. By going on the waiting list you will receive notification that there is a space, however being on the waiting list does not give priority booking. We do this because we are not always able to fill places on retreats from the waiting lists.
paying for your retreat
Dhanakosa operates on the basis of generosity, or dana. When you attend your retreat you will be given an opportunity to make a donation towards the ongoing costs of running Dhanakosa. Suggested donations are noted on the retreat information pages (see retreat calendar).
Please see dana economy for more information about the dana economy and how your donations are what makes Dhanakosa what it is.
