5 Jan to 7 Jan 2024
Retreat Type: 

Join Amayaraja and Candradhi for a weekend of practice and connection with young Buddhists from across Scotland and beyond. During the retreat we will explore what it means to bring all of our energy onto the path, and how to navigate the seemingly tensions and polarities that face us, within and without, in our lives and the world. Peace and passion, engagement and withdrawal, self and world…

Through stories, meditation, discussion, and ritual we’ll explore what it means to live a creative life of practice using mythic imagery from the life of the Buddha.

The retreat is open to young people aged 35 and under with all levels of experience.

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.
