Title

4 Dec to 11 Dec 2020
Retreat Type: 

The 3 lakshanas (Impermanence, Unsatisfactoriness and Insubstantiality) are a fundamental expression of the Buddha’s vision of Reality. In this teaching, the Buddha is pointing to the transformative effect of acknowledging, allowing, and opening to the ways in which we experience these 3 aspects of our lives and gives us practical advice on how to stay firmly on the path of practice and awakening.

This retreat will explore this teaching with talks, discussion, reflection and meditation - exploring ways to awaken to the truth of reality, right here, right now. We will also incorporate ritual and devotion to aid in the transformation in the fires of our experience.

For more information read the retreat information sheet.

Covid-19 update: At the current time we are expecting to be able to run this retreat with a maximum of 10 retreatants and 2 team members. We will be following physical distancing guidelines and have enhanced cleaning and hygiene measures in place.

Coming on retreat in this environment will feel different - we have put together a Covid-19 pre-retreat information sheet with more detail about what to expect, please read this before booking and in advance of coming on retreat.

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.
