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.
