Rewind, Refresh, Renew - ONLINE
Abi lives at Dhanakosa and heads up the House and Grounds team. She works in the garden, helping to tend this wild and beautiful place. She returned to live and work at Dhanakosa in 2018 after a period away, and originally moved up to Dhanakosa from the south east in 2014. The big landscape here holds her heart and provides a reflection of spaciousness which nourishes her practice. Abi will be ordained in 2021.
Maitrivira has been participating in Dhanakosa retreats for 20 years. He brings a wealth of experience with him.
An ideal first regulars retreat. These retreats take successful themes from our introductory programme, and gently introduce more silence, meditation and a stronger Buddhist context through teachings and Buddhist ritual, including the Sevenfold puja.
Open to anyone who has done an introductory retreat, or has been attending a local centre, and looking to take their practice a bit deeper.
This online weekend will be an opportunity to explore what it means to practice meditation, what helps and how we may apply the practices to every moment in a day to give rise to the possibility of a more easeful happy life. The weekend will offer an opportunity to re-connect with our meditation through practice, talks and discussions in smaller groups. The retreat is suitable for those already familiar with the the mindfulness of breathing and metta bhavana meditation practices.
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.
