Drumming, Chanting and Tai Chi: Meeting the Beating Heart of the World

Monday, May 20, 2019 to Friday, May 24, 2019
Retreat Team: 
Retreat Type: 

Join us in the heart of the Taraloka landscape, as the Earth-Sky Garden takes its form.  An opportunity to engage and encourage integration of body, speech and mind, through the joy of drumming, chanting and the simple flow of Tai Chi.  With our energies flowing, we can then explore stillness and quiet through meditation and silence.  (No previous experience or particular skills in music and/or Tai Chi needed.) 

The shrine space on this retreat will be the Tara Cabin, as work on the Earth-Sky Garden will be going on.  Please be prepared for some noise.  

Suggested donation (in addition to the booking fee): £190 waged / £120 unwaged
Booking Fee: 
£80.00

This retreat is nearly fully booked. Only 9 spaces left.

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.
