This long weekend is a celebration of our community and its unique emphasis on the practice of friendship as a path. There has not been such a Great Gathering for many years and the team, drawn from Tiratanaloka, Taraloka and Buddhafield look forward to welcoming you - women who have requested ordination and dharmacharinis - to gather at Taraloka for rituals, chanting, talks, discussion, meditation, workshops and the pleasure of each other’s company. We are expecting large numbers...
Weekend for young women training for ordination: conditions for faith and working through difficulties. Study on Padmasambhava and the Buddha, discussion, meditation, all with others who are at the same life stage as you. Unbeatable. With Vajratara, Karunadhi, Ratnadharini, Moksatara, Kusaladevi, Siladevi and Danayutta. 8-11 September 2017
A chance to be with other young women (under 35) who are also training for ordination. How can we, as young women, bring the Dharma into the centre of our lives? What will our lives look like? What are the most relevant issues for us? Public Preceptor Ratnadharini is also coming to share with us the benefit of her experience of practising Buddhism from a young age.
