Title

2 Sep to 9 Sep 2022
Retreat Type: 

This retreat will take an embodied and heartful approach to exploring and deeply connecting with our experience – out walking in the hills, through movement practice and in meditation.

We will meditate indoors and outside, where exploring our senses and opening our hearts to an elemental connection with nature will guide us. We will continue to practice the Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana and also introduce Buddhist ritual and the seven fold puja, with an emphasis on connecting with nature. Periods of silence together and quiet walks will all support a deep and rich experience of coming home to ourselves and the landscape that surrounds us, holds us and lives within us.

For more information please read the retreat information sheet.

2022 Covid-19 update: We expect to be running this retreat with a maximum of 25 people including the team. Before booking, please read our Covid pre-retreat information sheet here for more information about what to expect.

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.
