21 Nov to 26 Nov 2020
Retreat Type: 

This online version of our popular yoga and meditation retreat will combine introductory meditation teaching with yoga. We will cover an introduction to two traditional Buddhist meditations; the mindfulness of breathing and the development of loving kindness (Metta Bhavana) as well as a solid introduction to the principals of meditation.  We will also be exploring some of the broader aspects of traditional Buddhism to get a flavour of how these might be relevant to our modern lives.   

Both meditation and yoga teaching will be from first principles.  The supportive atmosphere of the retreat allows us to develop and deepen both practices, and understand how the two augment each other.

The retreat will start on Saturday evening at 7pm. The programme for Sun – Wed will be:

  • 8 - 9am meditation session
  • 10.30 -12 yoga session
  • 4 - 5pm discussion groups
  • 5 - 6pm meditation (there will be a break between groups and meditation)
  • 7.30 - 8.30pm evening ritual

The retreat will end at 12 noon on Thursday after the main teaching session. The retreat will run on the zoom meditation platform

The online retreat will run on the zoom meeting platform. This works in most web browsers, and you can also get free apps for all major mobile platforms too. You don’t need to pay for an account to take part.

Bookings will close at 4pm on Friday 20th November.

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.
