22 Mar to 29 Mar 2024
Retreat Type: 

How do the elements around us, and in us, move, dance, even play? How can we be part of that playful engagement rather than stand apart?

In this retreat we will be taking the five elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space) as our starting point, and explore them in our own bodies, in meditation, in nature and in the way we relate to one another. Practicing in and outdoors, we will research how the elements move us, and move through us, and so, each, find our unique place within the elemental play of the world.

Easy physical improvisational exercises will help us to become more present, and open to more light and joy. This will enrich our attention within and outside of meditation with the spirit of discovery. In meditation and in movement improvisation we enter the unknown, a dance with ever new experience. Joining this dance, we can discover where stillness and engagement meet.

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.
