1 Jul to 8 Jul 2022
Retreat Type: 

The imagination makes available and harmonises what may seem contrary energies within us and makes the spiritual life possible – but we do not always have the courage to open its doors, nor does today’s society always value or allow time for such experiences. Through writing, meditation and ritual, Wolf at the Door retreats offer a friendly and nurturing way of exploring this often neglected but essential faculty.

‘Imagination is the eye of the soul’ – Joseph Joubert

No prior writing experience is needed, but you will be expected to be familiar with the mindfulness of breathing, metta bhavana and puja, have a regular meditation practice and to have been on a retreat previously.

For more information please see the retreat information sheet.

2022 Covid-19 update: We expect to be running this retreat with a maximum of 21 people including the team. We have put together a Covid-19 pre-retreat information sheet with more detail about what to expect, please read this before booking and in advance of coming on retreat.

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. Those who cannot afford our suggested donations are free to contribute what they can. All donations are gratefully received. See our dana economy page for more information.

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.
