Lisa writes from Dhanakosa, Triratna’s beautiful retreat centre in the Scottish Highlands, saying -

“Autumn is in full swing here at the moment. As the season changes, we’re enjoying the beautiful range of colours in the glen.

We are currently looking to expand our pool of volunteer cooks!

Do you feel confident cooking for between 20 and 30 people? Can you come to Dhanakosa for a week to cook for groups on retreat? Then we’d love to hear from you!

We are looking for people who want to establish an ongoing relationship with Dhanakosa, committing to volunteering as a cook ideally at least once per year. Of course there is always support and an induction/training session from our team but essentially we need volunteers who are able to cook on their own in the kitchen.

By volunteering as a cook with us, you would have the chance to live and work with a practising Buddhist community, enjoying the natural beauty of the glen and supporting others on retreat. If you are interested, please get in touch with Monika, our kitchen manager at [at]

Looking ahead to winter, we have the Men’s winter retreat coming up from December 20th to 27th. Smritiratna will be leading the retreat, exploring the sublime abodes or Bramha Viharas. For more information check out our website: or simply call us on 01877 384 213!.
