The Elemental Body - 2022

Friday, July 29, 2022 to Friday, August 5, 2022
Retreat Team: 
Retreat Type: 

Where can we directly experience the 6 elements - the flow of matter & energy that forms us and the universe? Right here - in our very own elemental body. 

By working very directly with the body in a variety of physical ways we both increase sensation and our awareness of it.  By continually directing our attention to the changing sensations of body, breath, and feeling-tone, we can have a real felt sense of the elements of body-mind that form us and drive us - the elements that are common to all life, and are experienced by our individual human formations.

By doing this we expose our habits and resistances and reveal the delights & difficulties of being human. By becoming more intimate with how the elements manifest in us from moment to moment, we can recognise attachments to their unhelpful aspects, and begin to cherish their helpful energies while we still have them in our living being. We can engage with the energies we need to loosen up what restricts us, find a more authentic way of living beyond our small ego-selves,  become more at ease with the waves of life that flow through us, and have direct experience of everything from stasis to freedom.  NB please read the full retreat description before booking.

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.
