Wolf at The Door workshops and retreats are run by a group of friends within the Triratna Buddhist Order: Dharmavadana, Dhivan, Padmacandra, Satyadaka, Satyagita, Varasahaya, Vidyacitta and Vishvantara co-lead weekends and retreats in various combinations in the UK and further afield, while Satyalila concentrates largely on Order and other special events. Profiles of the team are here.
As long as no new Covid restrictions come into force, we hope now to put on our usual programme of in-person events. But we want to continue laying on online weekends in addition as they enable people to take part in Wolf who otherwise could not. Please see below for details concerning individual events. Please also check the websites of host Centres for updates.
New Event! Please note we are running an online weekend, 13th-14th August. See below.
As well as the dates already arranged, as below, this year we hope to put on more weekends at the West London Buddhist Centre. There will also be a weekend at the Sheffield Buddhist Centre (3rd - 4th September). Watch out for details.
Our 2022 programme so far
11th-12th June: a weekend at the West London Buddhist Centre. In person with Vishvantara and Dharmavadana. There are just a few places left on this event now. More information and booking here.
1st - 8th July 2022: a week's retreat at Dhanakosa Retreat Centre, near Balquhidder, Scotland, with Dharmavadana, Varasahaya, Vidyacitta and Vishvantara.
Write and meditate by the shores of beautiful Loch Voil.
When we lead the Dharma life and move towards a more fully human one, the imagination is an essential part of that journey. Wolf at the Door offers you the chance to adventure in the Imagination through the practice of writing, meditation and ritual.
No prior experience of writing is needed. We ask that you are familiar with the basic Triratna meditations and puja and have a regular practice as meditation is not taught on the retreat. Also that you have been on retreat previously.
More information through Dhanakosa's website here. The retreat is fully booked but it's always worth phoning Dhanakosa to go on the waiting list.
13th-14th August: Wolf at Home, an online weekend with Vishvantara and Dharmavadana. Please email us for more information. See 'Contact Us' under the 'More' drop-down list above.
15th-16th October: a weekend at the Manchester Buddhist Centre. In person with Satyadaka and Dharmavadana. Go here for more information and booking.
22nd-23rd October: a weekend at the Nottingham Buddhist Centre. In person with Satyagita and Dharmavadana. Go here for more information and booking.
