Mindfulness: A direct path to freedom - an online retreat

Fri, 16 Oct, 2020 - 16:54

Maintaining steady, kindly awareness of changing phenomena is the essence of Satipatthana practice - the Buddha’s teaching on mindfulness in the service of liberation. Treat yourself to space, simplicity, beauty – inner and outer.


If you are training for ordination then please join Prasadavati, Maitrisiddhi, Maitrimala, Viryadhi for this journey into open-hearted wisdom from Saturday 21 November...

Could you help support Taraloka through the Covid-19 pandemic?

Thu, 15 Oct, 2020 - 16:51

Since March, Taraloka has been unable to run residential retreats, Finally, last weekend, our first, small, socially-distanced retreat was due to begin. Then, the Welsh Government declared our county, Wrexham, to be in strict lockdown again.


Now, we can’t even offer solitaries, donations from which, alongside those from online retreat attendees, had been seeing us through. Even when we can offer residential retreats again, social distancing means they will be for small numbers only, so we will be running them...

How can we hold sorrow and joy - in ourselves, others and the world?  We may hold one aspect more in the light, the other more in shadow, however we need to embrace both to be fully alive.  With Tara as our guide - seated in meditation, stepping out into the world, fearless, wise and full of compassion - we can develop our own budding faculties of love, delight, compassion, ease and equanimity.  These can then become much needed offerings...
