Moksadhi (she/her) first encountered Buddhism in Nepal in 2012 and has been following the Buddhist path ever since. Her passions lie in exploring external and internal aspects of wilderness. Her practice follows an embodied approach to finding qualities of spaciousness, wildness and freedom in both meditation and movement. Moksadhi was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order in 2019. She is currently training to become a yoga teacher with Bodhiyoga and regularly leads retreats at Dhanakosa.
Siddhimala became involved with the Triratna Buddhist Community in 1992 and moved into a community in London before going to live and work at Taraloka retreat Centre in 1994 for 3.5yrs and at Dhanakosa in 2014 for 4 years. She was ordained in 2002 and is inspired by the Bodhisattva ideal - a life in the service of a higher purpose.
She trained to teach Tibetan Yoga (Kum Nye) from 2008-11, which she finds a very helpful addition to the practice of mindfulness and meditation. She enjoys sharing her passions of Meditation, Dharma, walking, kayaking, music and the dance of countryside and wildlife.
Open to all, these retreats are suitable for both beginners and those with more experience, but no previous experience is assumed. All these retreats include introductory meditation teaching and periods of silence.
These retreats are an excellent short introduction to Buddhism and Meditation. We will cover an introduction to two traditional Buddhist meditations: the mindfulness of breathing and the development of loving kindness (Metta Bhavana). We will also introduce some key elements of the Buddhist tradition. As well as giving a grounding in the basic principles of Buddhism and meditation, these retreats are an ideal reflective situation in which to take a fresh look at ourselves.
These retreats are suitable for complete beginners to meditation as well as being an ideal refresher for those who already have some experience.
