8 Mar to 15 Mar 2024
Retreat Type: 

Body, Earth and Breath is the result of our shared interest and personal explorations over many years working with the body in movement, stillness and hands on touch.

Each day we will explore how the body can be a 'doorway' into listening to ourselves and take us into a deeper, more open and easeful relationship to our experience. We will offer guided and improvised movement explorations, sometimes with music; for example, how is it to feel ourselves made of the earth, to inhabit, breathe and dance our bones and find the movement, stories and images our bodies' hold.

We will also introduce the practice of Authentic Movement, an embodied relational movement practice - it's a bit like the metta bhavana as a movement practice! In a relational field the practice invites us to deeply attend to the body's impulses and follow their expression in movement. In this practice life becomes more spontaneous, creative and more deeply personal, as we allow ourselves to become authentic to our own nature –more genuinely who we are and be seen for who we are.

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.
