Spaces on the Brahma Viharas Retreat!

Sun, 1 May, 2022 - 15:04

The Brahma Viharas are a transformational path to the Bodhicitta… They transform our negative tendencies into Love, Compassion, Gladness and Equanimity.  We will practise these wondrous meditations within a specially created Mandala of the Five Jinas and also come to see how, in our everyday lives, we can dwell much more in these loving states of mind.

Come learn more on this legendary Taraloka retreat with Ratnavandana, Maitrisiddhi, Maitrisambhava and Mahamani. 11-20 May. https://taraloka.org.uk/brahmaviharas

Dancing with Pure Presence: The Great Gathering 1 - 5 June 2022

Fri, 18 Feb, 2022 - 16:21

Dancing with Pure Presence: The Great Gathering 1 - 5 June 2022

Fri, 18 Feb, 2022 - 16:21

For Dharmacharinis and Women+ who’ve asked for ordination. 

Come dance into awareness and wisdom -  with Vajradevi and the Taraloka team.

Let’s come together in large numbers to take uncontrived mindfulness through all experience!  When we’re mindful and present to what’s happening – both ‘internally’ and ‘externally’ – our responses become steady, wise, and confident. Whatever we’re doing, whether we’re meditating, working, communicating, or singing, becomes a vehicle to ‘grow’ awareness. Mindfulness becomes panoramic and we live with immediacy and creativity.  

Make the most of the Jubilee...
