Introductory Weekend: Loving Kindness

Friday, July 27, 2018 to Sunday, July 29, 2018
Led By: The Taraloka Team
Retreat Type: Introductory

2,500 years ago the Buddha described and taught metta or loving kindness as a way to develop positivity and warmth, to leave behind harmful emotions, and to connect with other people at a deeper level.   He saw it as liberating and called it ‘freedom of heart’.  Practising metta can, over time, bring ease, relaxation and delight into our lives, and transform our relationships.  Our experiences of ourselves and other people can change for the good in ways we could not have imagined.

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.
