29 Dec to 3 Jan 2021
Retreat Type: 

Join our popular New Year retreat online for 2020. We are sad not to be able to welcome you here at Dhanakosa but confident we can have a meaningful and connecting experience online with a good balance of input all together and in smaller groups with time offline to reflect and recoup.

The theme will be exploring the myths and symbols of the White Lotus Sutra and the team onsite will be Mokshadhi, Lisa from Dhanakosa and Parami so we can transmit from the wonderful Dhanakosa shrine room. Acharashraddha and others will be participating remotely so we will still be able to ‘meet’ in groups together as well as being all together for meditations, talks and other input as well as rituals - including, of course, our ritual to say goodbye to 2020 and welcome to 2021.

The retreat will start at 4pm on Tuesday 29th December and conclude at 5pm on Sunday January 3rd 2021.

For more information see the retreat information sheet.

This retreat is for Mitras in the Triratna Buddhist Community who wish to deepen their Buddhist practice and who have been on at least one week-long retreat.

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.

Suggested donations

The donations we collect from you on your retreat guarantee future retreats.

Booking fees for 2021:

  • £30 for online weekend
  • £50 for online week
  • £75 for weekend retreats
  • £100 for week/10 day retreats
