These are dark times in more ways than one. Yet there is a light within humanity that shines forth nonetheless. Faith in the Buddha Dharma is faith in that light. You’re welcome to join us as we explore this theme from Dhanakosa on 20th January.  Smritiratna will lead a meditation, give a short talk and arrange small group reflections so in all these ways we can contemplate this theme throughout the retreat. If you can precede it by scheduling your own meditation and follow it with a contemplative walk in Nature, you’ll be making the most of a special opportunity. Join us at 10.15. Then we lock to the meeting (to avoid the disruption of latecomers) at 10.30 and stay online right through to 1pm. As well as the meditation period there will be hourly breaks built in to refresh your energy. This is a chance to come together in shared practice once more. 

Bookings will close at 4pm on Tuesday 19th January.

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.

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