Retreat Type: 

‘If happiness has not its seat and centre in the breast. We may be wise or rich or great but never can be blessed. No treasures, no pleasures can make us happy long. The hearts aye the part aye that makes us right or wrong’; so Robert Burns declared 200 years ago.

We will focus on meditations of the heart; practice exercises that will lead us into the hidden depths and treasures that lie in our hearts; explore the heart opening potential of living for a week in spiritual community with like-minded people. The approach to teaching will be practical and direct, with plenty of time to reflect and just to be, free from all the pressures and demands of our ordinary lives.

This retreat is suitable for complete beginners as well as being an ideal refresher for those who already have some experience.

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.
