Retreat Type: 

What does it mean to face your life fully? Where do you find the courage to turn towards yourself, your live, your mistakes, your fullness and also towards others? What if you could drop your agenda and accept the natural flow of your life? When you deeply inhabit the space of your body you begin to walk through your life more easefully, freely and joyfully. And you give yourself the chance to live your life more authentically, more honestly, and with true sincerity of heart. Practising together in meditation and simple circle work we find the support to witness and engage with ourselves with love and kindness.

The main purpose of this retreat is to co-create a space where women can go deeper in the practice of meditation (personal and inter-relational) through the practices of witnessing each other, embodied presence work, and facilitated meditation periods.

This retreat is suitable for people with at least six months regular meditation practice and who have attended at least one full week's retreat before.

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.
