The Brahma Viharas - Living in the Mandala: Meditation

Wednesday, July 18, 2018 to Friday, July 27, 2018
Retreat Team: 
Suryaka
Dharmakarunya
Retreat Type: 

The Dalai Lama has called the Brahma Viharas our ‘spiritual birthright’. These practices are our heart’s natural state experienced when the ‘clouds of illusion’ lift. We will explore the transforming power of these beautiful practices as we find the energy to shift the clouds and reveal our true heart.  Together we will deepen our experience of the four meditation practices - metta bhavana, karuna bhavana, mudita bhavana and upekkha bhavana – through meditation, reflection, presentations, related activities, devotion and through silence.

Arrive for start of retreat 5-6pm. Ends last day at 11am

Suggested donation (in addition to the booking fee): £380 waged / £250 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.
