Celebrating 35 Years of Taraloka Retreat Centre - Interview with the Founders

From Triratna News on Tue, 15 Dec, 2020 - 17:39

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

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...
