and Team
Retreat Type: 

So with a boundless heart should one cherish all living beings; radiating kindness over the entire world….. outward and unbounded, free from hatred and ill-will’  

The Buddha, from the Metta Sutta

Wouldn’t you love to stay confident, kind and calm, when that person cuts you up at the traffic lights?  Or being able to step into self-compassion, rather than listening endlessly to your inner critic?  Metta, a kindly, compassionate attitude towards ourselves and others, no matter who they are, lies at the heart of what the Buddha teaches, helping us develop stability of heart and mind to steer us during difficult times.

Paying for your retreat

Taraloka runs on generosity.

To book a retreat you pay a booking fee.  This is the only charge made for coming on retreat. We want Taraloka retreats to be available to any woman, whatever her financial situation.

At the end of your retreat, you have the opportunity to give money towards Taraloka.  If you are able to donate, you are giving to another woman who otherwise could not afford to come on retreat.  And you are helping to give the gift of Taraloka to the women of the future.

Running on generosity is radical – thank you for being part of that.
