13 Mar to 18 Mar 2021
Retreat Type: 

This is a low time commitment online retreat from Dhanakosa to help us discover how we can use the five skandhas as a reflection scheme in everyday life.  It will take a practical and accessible look at this traditional list, reflection on which is said to lead to awakening.

The retreat will have two sessions a day; a morning session (10 – 11.30am) for a short presentation on the days topic and a led reflection, and then an evening session (7.30-8.45pm) to explore the topic together and have the opportunity to meditate together as a retreat group for those who can.  The morning session will be recorded and posted so people unable to attend will be able to catch up and still participate in the evening discussion.  The retreat will run from 7.30pm on Saturday 13th March and finish at 12.30am on Thursday 18th March. More information and a detailed programme read the retreat information sheet.

Doing an online retreat, you'll be engaging on the retreat within the unique conditions of your day to day life. In order to get the most out of the retreat, we ask you attend as much of the programme as possible. Ahead of the retreat we encourage you to spend some time thinking about how you can create supportive conditions for practice within your day to day environment.

This retreat will be running online using 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.

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.
