Once There Was and Once There Was Not....

Retreat Type: 

Using the folk-story of 'The Handless Maiden', through archetypal images from Buddhism, myth and folk tale we will explore the creative feminine. By stepping inside the timeless tradition of stories, we will become intimate with the deeper currents in our own lives.  We will create a strong visual world to awaken the imagination and connect with feminine archetypes including the wild Dakini, wise crone, innocent maiden, loving mother and their shadows........

Suggested donation (in addition to the booking fee): £315 waged / £195 unwaged

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.
