In Buddhist tradition, dating back to the time of the Buddha, practitioners have undertaken periods of solitude and reflection as integral to their practice. At Dhanakosa we support this tradition by the upkeep and maintenance of two separate solitary retreat facilities.
During the Coronavirus crisis we are continuing to offer solitary retreat facilities here at Dhanakosa and we are implementing enhanced cleaning of our solitary cabins between retreatants.
We ask that you consider your own travel risk management and also, importantly, ask that you do not use a solitary retreat to self-isolate. This puts the Dhanakosa community and future solitary retreatants at risk.
The bothy provides a more remote solitary retreat facility for those experienced with solitary retreats and looking for a secluded space to do a longer retreat. You can book for a minimum period of 3 weeks. Click here for more information.
Note: There is an application process to book a retreat in the bothy due to the isolated location and longer minimum period of stay.
Our vajra sheilin retreat hut is an excellent facility both for those familiar to retreat practice, and for those who are looking to undertake their first solitary retreat. You can book for one to two weeks at a time. Click here for more information.
