Moksadhi first came across Buddhism in Nepal and encountered Triratna at the Cambridge Buddhist Centre in 2013. After participating in a 5 month residential Dharma LIfe course at Adhisthana in 2016, she moved to London to immerse herself in Buddhist practice, living in community and working for Lama's Pyjamas charity shop. She completed her ordination training at the London Buddhist Centre, getting ordained at Akashavana in 2019. Moksadhi has a long standing love of the wilds of Scotland and has been involved in hill walking retreats at Dhanakosa since 2017. She joined the community at Dhanakosa in June 2020 to pursue her love of the elemental wilds in relation to her Buddhist practice more fully.

A weekend of practice and connection with young Buddhists from across Scotland and beyond. During the retreat we will explore what it means in our lives to follow in the footsteps of the Buddha and join a community of practitioners on a mythic quest for freedom. Through stories, meditation, discussion and ritual we’ll look at what it means to practice the Buddha’s teaching as young people in the 21st Century. As individuals and as a collective many challenges face us as we tread our path through the world.
