Taraloka Retreat Centre offers retreats and other events to women from all over the world.
A team of women live and work here, manage the property and run a programme of retreats throughout the year. There are events for newcomers to meditation, yoga and Buddhism as well as retreats for experienced Buddhist practitioners.
It’s hard to sustain a real sense of inner potential and stay true to that. Even when we want to change, it’s hard to know how best to start. A retreat can help with both those dilemmas. If you come on a retreat with us, we aim to give you an environment in which you can refresh yourself, mentally and physically.
All our retreat leaders are ordained members of the Triratna Buddhist Order (formerly known as the Western Buddhist Order). Taraloka itself is a charity (Registered Charity No. 274500) operating under the general constitution of the Triratna Buddhist Community (formerly known as the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order) which was founded in 1967 by Sangharakshita.
Taraloka was voted “Retreat Place of the Year” in 2006 and again in 2008 by The Good Retreat Guide.
