11 Oct to 18 Oct 2024
Retreat Type: 

Modern life is complex, often demanding and can be highly technical too. But as human beings gifted with the magical mystery of awareness, we have all we need to align with and relax into awakening, just as the Buddha did.

On this retreat we will explore the possibility of easing into natural simplicity and effortless enjoyment of life's journey. Drawing on the ancient wisdom of Mahamudra we will invite in resources, release obstacles, and relax into the flow of life more fully without the stress of trying to control our experience.

The retreat will invite a revitalisation and a fresh approach to practice wherever you are on your journey and whatever meditation you practice. As a retreat community we will meditate together becoming a stronger force for good in the world. We will do this within the timeless flow of awakening in the company of all our fellow meditators past, present, near and far inspired by all enlightened beings, mythical, magical, and just like us.

This retreat is for people who already have a regular meditation practice and established connection with the Triratna Buddhist Community. Who are already familiar with the mindfulness of breathing and the metta bhavana, and the practice of puja.

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.
