Wednesday 12th May 2021: 10.15 - 13.00 (GMT)

You are welcome to join Smritiratna online, he has the following to say about the retreat: 

''The title, ‘Active Hope for Humanity’,  of this little retreat echoes the title of the Dhanakosa week I’m co-leading in April. I have a feeling this week will be deeply inspiring and on May 12th I plan to tell you all about it, so that even if you weren’t able to attend the week, you don’t entirely miss out. So on Wednesday May 12th after leading a meditation I’ll address the theme in a short talk then arrange reflections in small groups and answer any questions you may have.

If you can precede the online period by scheduling your own meditation and follow it with a contemplative walk in Nature, you’ll be making the most of a special opportunity. Join us at 10.15. Then we lock the meeting at 10.30 (to avoid the disruption of latecomers) and stay online right through to 1pm. As well as the meditation period there will be hourly breaks built in to refresh your energy. This is a chance to come together in shared practice once more.''

This retreat will be running online using 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.

Bookings will close at 4pm on Tuesday 11th May.

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.
