‘She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes’ - Byron

Tara - accessible but mysterious, formless and shape-shifting, tender and fierce: utter stillness and creative spontaneity. With silence, meditation, ritual, devotion and poetry - we will open
ourselves to Tara and to our own depths. Come and explore the many faces, colours and qualities of Tara in the perfect spring-time setting of Taraloka.

Suggested donation (in addition to the booking fee): £325 waged / £205 unwaged
Booking Fee: 
£80.00

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.
