Retreat on the Bardo verses for Dharmacharinis

Sat, 10 Sep, 2022 - 15:34

Attn: Order Members… we still have places available on our retreat on the verses from the Bardo Thodol – one of the main insight reflections recommended by Bhante from the very early days of the movement. 23rd September - 2nd October. More information and booking here

‘Bardo’ literally means ‘in-between’, so the Bardo of Life is an experience of aliveness arising between dream states. But what does it mean to be alive, to be awake to the full mystery...

Young Women's Weekend 17th - 19th June

Wed, 8 Jun, 2022 - 15:31

Got a free weekend? Taraloka’s Young Women’s weekend is a chance for women+ in their 20s and 30s to come together and explore the symbolism of circles…

What would it be like to live our lives as an ever widening circle? An all-encompassing circle from which compassion and love radiate out into the world without discrimination? 

During this weekend we’ll gather together to explore the theme of circles, non-linearity and inclusivity in our practice and our friendships, looking at both the compassion and wisdom...

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...
