The True Value of Appreciation 

December 9th 1015 - 1300 (GMT)

Within his over-arching theme of ‘Appreciative Mindfulness in Troubled Times’ here Smritiratna appreciates appreciation itself - a humble but extraordinary way of living human life.

Please arrive by 10.15am to allow time for arriving, saying hello, settling in and making sure our devices are well adjusted for an optimal experience. Then at 10.30 the retreat will start (you won't be able to join the retreat after 1030 so please be on time). This will include a led meditation, a short presentation and the opportunity to meet in small groups (3's or 4's) to share experiences and formulate questions for later. There will be a ten minute break as we approach halfway but also please close your eyes and take it easy if you start getting screen fatigue at any time. The retreat will finish by 1pm.

To fully benefit your half-day retreat we recommend that you keep your phone off (along with TV and Radio) for the whole morning. So from the moment you wake, you can devote your morning to mindfulness, meditation and reflection. You can schedule time for your own practice before you tune in at 10.15 and in this way you’ll be more receptive to our gathering and really benefit. 

Bookings will close at 4pm on Tuesday 8th December.

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.
