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 when we can 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.

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. Note that we do 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. You should also have been on retreat previously. Our week-long retreats can be intense and go quite deep, and we have found that if participants do not have a sound level of experience, they run into difficulties.
Booking not open yet but watch out for more information on Dhanakosa's website here.
Please do email us at Wolf at the Door with any queries or for more information.
If you'd like us to run a workshop at your Buddhist centre or retreat centre, or anywhere near you, please get in touch with us.
