I joined Taraloka community in January of 2021, and I look after the bookshop, publicity, recruitment and a whole host of other areas. I'm like the team octopus! Prior to coming here, I worked in London as a music teacher and performance artist, and that has definitely influenced my areas of interest - ritual, chanting and lots of metta practice!
Taraloka has been home to some of the most significant retreats of my Buddhist life – a place where my creative and spiritual paths have come together. The community of practitioners – those who live here, and those who come here on retreat – create a kind of collective alchemy that has given me the courage to turn towards suffering in my own experience and in the world.
I am overjoyed to be here, working with this wonderful community and helping to create the conditions for women to practice the Dharma.
