Wild Heart - Living World

Retreat Type: 

If we are to care for this fragile world then it matters that we make time to cherish it.  We can learn from other living beings: allowing our heart to open to the silver song of a robin; letting our bones settle in the still presence of an oak tree.  On this retreat we will spend silent time in nature – our outer landscape - and also explore meditation - sitting still with our inner landscape.  We will also use writing to help us deepen our appreciation of inner and outer worlds. In this way we can begin to cultivate a more vivid, alive, relaxed awareness, one that brings us into a more loving and respectful relationship both with ourselves and the living world; one that is saturated with a sense of mystery and beauty. 

No previous experience of meditation needed - just curiosity to learn something new, and a willingness to step out into rain or sun.

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.
