Retreat Type: 

"Where the Wildness is: Dancing with Form and Freedom" is a Wolf at the Door Buddhist writing retreat, exploring the imagination through pen, paper - and the spaces in between. Can we find the wildness of imagination through letting ourselves go with no limits, or do we find it using particular forms or parameters? What have other writers and artists done? Is it possible to dance between the two?

In this retreat, through exercises and space to experiment, we will be exploring both, using form and freeform, as we begin to map our wild inner landscapes together. Come and delve deep with Wolf at the Door, in the beautiful surroundings of Dhanakosa!

No prior writing experience is needed. This retreat is suitable for Triratna Regulars, Mitras or Order Members with at least a year's experience of Triratna and a knowledge of the three main meditation practices and devotional ritual (puja).

For more information please see the retreat information sheet.

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.
