Reimagining the Mandala

Friday, September 4, 2020 to Friday, September 11, 2020
Retreat Team: 
Retreat Type: 

Connecting with beauty, we honour the land, our creative mind and the relationship between the two. We will explore spaces both inner and outer in the shrine room and the new Taraloka earth-sky garden. Playing with art-making in various ways we will create both personal and collective mandalas. With Sangharakshita' s text  "The Greater Mandala" as our guide, we will explore how we might move towards the ideal of working and playing within a greater mandala of aesthetic appreciation.

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.
