Dharmacharini work retreat
Friday 18th to Monday 28th October

Following up on 2018’s enjoyable work retreat we are offering another opportunity for Dharmacharinis to express their wish to help Akashavana by coming out to play (and work)! Here are some testimonials from this year:

Thanks for allowing me to spend such a relaxed time with a lovely bunch of women at Akashavana.   I think that retreat has prompted the biggest shift that’s happened for me since getting ordained.  Work retreats are underrrated!   I very much appreciated it and all of us. 

I loved the working retreat.

We will not be charging for the retreat, but would appreciate some dana to cover food costs
