What is it to be fully aware, fully alive? Mindfulness is an adventure! In these times more than ever, the Buddha’s teaching of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness gives us an essential framework for how to stay present, clear-minded, and living from our deepest values, whether we’re meditating or in the thick of our daily lives.

Take part in this online home retreat to train in the relief and ease of being in the present moment – whatever that present moment looks like. How can we taste the deep excitement of opening experientially to the nature of reality itself – available in each thought-moment – right here, right now?

Taraloka is a women’s Buddhist retreat centre, founded in 1985. Ever since, we’ve been offering a breadth and depth of retreats for all levels of experience, from intensive meditation retreats for the Order and for Ordination Training, through to newcomers weekends giving a first taste of meditation. But with Coronavirus we’ve had to shut the buildings – and go online to offer what we do to everyone across the globe. We’re still living and working as a residential community through lockdown, and all of the Taraloka team want to welcome you virtually to Taraloka for the live events – even if you can’t come in person right now!

Connect with others taking part on the Community Toolkit space!

All our classes are offered by donation. If you can, donate* to allow others who can’t afford it to access these vital Dharma resources when they need them most. Thank you!

* If donating towards the home retreat please make a note it’s for ‘Taraloka’
