21 Dec to 28 Dec 2015
Retreat Type: 

In the silence of a starlit winter's night, seeing a leaf jewelled with ice crystals, suddenly you're standing in the midst of wonder, as if somehow you just stepped through a gateway into another realm. Can you recall experiences like that? On this meditation retreat there'll be no fancy new techniques but ideal conditions in which to practise what you already know - mindfulness, metta, devotion, they are all gateways if only we can free ourselves from distraction and practise wholeheartedly.

For more information about the retreat, please read the retreat information sheet.

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.
