An Ordinary Person's Guide to Becoming a Bodhisattva 2021

Friday, September 24, 2021 to Friday, October 1, 2021
Retreat Type: 

Provocative and poetic, uncompromising and deeply kind: Shantideva’s Bodhicaryavatara, ‘Guide to the Bodhisattva Path’ gives us a path of vision and a path of transformation.  How can we engage all of ourselves - messy, passionate, loving-hating beings that we are - in the quest for awakening for the sake of all that lives?

*Please read and ensure you are able to comply with Taraloka's COVID 19 precautions including around travel BEFORE booking your retreat. *

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.
