Retreats at DSMC

Dhamma Sukha Retreat Registration

Dhamma Sukha offers 10-day retreats in the meditation practice of TWIM-Metta-Loving Kindness, based on the earliest Buddhist Suttas. The goal is full awakening here and now, as described in the earliest ancient texts.


       Three types of retreats are offered:

  1. Online retreats which is a less intense retreat that you do at home even while you have work and family to take care of.

  2. The Zoom Retreat offered usually in the winter months. More Intense practice, where we expect at least 6 hours of sitting sessions. Undisturbed by family. Typically you are not working.

  3. Physical On-site retreats (this page) here, at DSMC. Totally withdrawn from worldly affairs with noble silence practicing all day long.
