7 Nov to 11 Nov 2020
Retreat Type: 

This popular retreat will be moving online for 2020. Movement and meditation follow on from one another, bridging the gap between stillness and engagement with the world. Easy physical improvisational exercises will help us to become more present and mindful, and open us to more light and joy. This will enrich our attention within and outside of meditation allowing us to be saturated with the spirit of discovery.  It is suitable for anybody who wants to explore physical and vocal expression in a supportive group.

The retreat will start on Saturday morning and run through to Wednesday. There will be two sessions each day:

  • 0800 – 0900 Morning meditation session
  • 1600 – 1800 A mixture of movement improvisation, dancing and meditation

On Saturday and Sunday morning, following a short break at 9am, Maitrivira will be offering introductions to the Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana meditation practices. One to one meditation reviews will also be offered through the week.

This programme can be taken as a structure for a home retreat if people wish, or also as a support for being at home, maybe in lock-down, through this challenging time.

The online retreat will run on the zoom meeting platform. This works in most web browsers, and you can also get free apps for all major mobile platforms too. You don’t need to pay for an account to take part.

For more information read the retreat information sheet and see Jayachitta's website.

Bookings will close at 4pm on Friday 6th November.

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.
