Title

30 Jun to 7 Jul 2017
Retreat Type: 

From the seat of meditation, we meet our experience in its entirety. What do we do next?

It is in our direct embodied experience we are able to witness the truth of this moment, and we will learn to be with what we find without covering it up or distorting it. This moves us into the uncharted territory of learning to go beyond our caught habits, and to feel the release of liberation associated with this radical experience of letting go.

The main purpose of this retreat is to co-create a space where women can go deeper in the practice of meditation, whether you are newer to retreat* or are a seasoned meditator. After establishing a stable heart/mind using the breath and metta practices, we will be working with allowing ourselves to be open and listen deeply to our hearts and bodies, using various techniques and emphases in our meditation.

The retreat leaders have abundant experience in holding and co-creating space in order to facilitate this process of going deeper, no matter what your experience. We wish to invite you all, you dharma heroines, to join a sangha of women practicing together--a most precious opportunity!

Paying for your retreat

Dhanakosa runs on donations

Dhanakosa does not charge for retreats.  Instead, we ask people to make a donation towards the ongoing cost of running the centre, for everyone.  This recognises that everyone’s financial circumstances are different.  It’s a genuine donation but our suggested donations may serve as a guide.  You are free to decide how much to give.  And we don’t want our doors to be closed to the less well off.

The donations we collect from you on your retreat pay for future retreats.  You are “paying it forward”.  And the retreatants of the future will heartily appreciate your generosity.
