Mindfulness: A Direct Path to Freedom - November 2022

Friday, November 25, 2022 to Sunday, December 4, 2022
Retreat Team: 
and Team

Maintaining steady, kindly awareness of changing phenomena is the essence of Satipatthana practice - the Buddha’s teaching on mindfulness in the service of liberation. Join us on a journey into open-hearted wisdom. Treat yourself to space, simplicity, beauty – inner and outer.  Our main emphasis will be on body and heart/mind.  We’ll become more deeply embodied, and explore how to grow more aware of how we see, relate to, and “use” our bodies and heart-minds. Then we’ll open to a wisdom perspective on experience - the insight aspect of mindfulness as the Path to Freedom.

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.

There will be an opportunity to make your donation at the end of the retreat.  Donations can be made by credit/debit card, cheque or cash.

Running on generosity is radical – thank you for being part of that.
