WOLF AT THE DOOR: REWILDING THE HUMAN SPACE - a writing course led by Ananda and Vishvantara with Dharmavadana.

Wolf at the Door offers you a wild space for a week, to explore and unearth unsuspected marvels through the practice of writing, ritual, group meditation and discussion. Instead of a spade, we’ll use pens and keyboards; and instead of fertilizer we’ll use our deep imagination.

No prior writing experience needed, but you will need to know the basic Triratna meditation practices.

Each day will begin with a group meditation in the shrine-room, and there will be a short devotional ritual to round off the day.  

There will also be periods of silence each day, as well as silence over-night.  This is so that we can concentrate more easily on our inner experience, and allow ourselves to go deeper into our imaginative life.

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.
