Title

24 Jun to 1 Jul 2022
Retreat Type: 

This week will combine training and reflection – interaction and quiet time. It offers a chance to learn and to open the heart in the beauty of the Scottish Highlands.We will introduce skills in communication, as well as meditation and some Buddhist principles.

This retreat is open to all; no previous experience of Buddhism or meditation is expected. There will be communication input, exercises, role plays, various types of connecting, physical stretches, some challenge of habits and views, and plenty of fun. There will be free time for walking, reading or resting. Simple ritual, poetry or chanting to end the evening quietly.

March 2022 update: Due to unexpected circumstance we have had to cancel the skilful communication retreat for 2022. We expect this retreat to be on the programme for 2023 and hope you can join us then.

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.
