Turning Obstacles Into the Path: The Great Gathering 2024

Thursday, May 30, 2024 to Sunday, June 2, 2024

All proceeds from this event will go to support Tiratanaloka Unlimited.

With urgency, humour and passion, 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? And how can we turn obstacles into the path itself? 

There are no single rooms left for this retreat, if you'd like to be on the waiting list please email admin@taraloka.org.uk  NO BEDS AVAILABLE, just camping and mattresses now


Suggested donation (in addition to the booking fee): £225.00 waged / £160.00 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. As far as possible, we don't want anyone's financial situation to stop them from coming to Taraloka.  

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 person 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.
