Title

19 Apr to 26 Apr 2024

Awareness and Wisdom are both qualities of the mind that is beautiful, clear seeing and free. These and other qualities of the 'kalyana', or 'ethically lovely' mind will be explored on this meditation retreat through the lens of the Satipatthana Sutta, the Buddha's teaching on Mindfulness, and the five Spiritual Faculties.

We will explore the experience of receptive and open awareness, to cultivate both beauty and truth, while allowing the whole range of our experience to be known. There will be regular input, some led meditations and the opportunity to talk about your meditation practice with the team. During the evening sessions there will be some simple Buddhist ritual.

The retreat is suitable for people with at least 1 year of regular meditation practice and who have attended at least one full weeks 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.
