30 Nov to 7 Dec 2018
Retreat Type: 

Buddhism is not about beliefs, it’s about the way we live our lives.  On these retreats we will explore traditional Buddhist teachings and meditation practices and see how they apply directly to our lives.  These retreats are an ideal reflective situation in which to take a fresh look at ourselves.

These retreats are open to all.  They are suitable for both beginners and those with more experience but no previous experience is assumed.  All these retreats include introductory meditation teaching and periods of silence.

For more information read the retreat information sheet.

Paying for your retreat

Dhanakosa runs on donations

To book a retreat you pay a booking fee. This is the only fee we ask you to pay. Dhanakosa operates in the spirit of generosity, or dana (a Sanskrit/Pali word meaning giving or gift). This allows us to be open to anyone regardless of individual financial circumstances, by allowing people to pay what they can afford.

Dhanakosa is continuing to lose money throughout this period of Covid-19 as we have reduced the number of places on each retreat.  Although we recognise that many people are suffering financial hardship and want to keep retreats on a donations basis, if you are able to give a little more than you would normally please consider doing so.
