Title

11 Oct to 18 Oct 2019
Retreat Type: 

This retreat is about crafting a small number of images from a deep place of resonance between ourselves and our subject, supported by meditation and silence. We will focus on the importance of going beyond just looking, to really seeing with our whole heart, mind and body. We will absorb and come into relationship with the beautiful landscape of the glen before we try to capture it photographically whether in big views or in more intimate details. Using inspiration from Buddhist tradition and age old meditation techniques, we will set a tone for the retreat where stillness and awareness can naturally feed into the creative process.

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.
