Awakening Loving Kindness: Metta 2020 - CANCELLED

Sunday, October 4, 2020 to Saturday, October 10, 2020
Retreat Team: 
and Team
Retreat Type: 

Metta, loving kindness towards ourselves and others, lies at the heart of Buddhist practice.  We'll explore how the metta bhavana meditation practice can transform our emotional lives into ones more consistently based on love, friendship, interconnectedness and gratitude.  Body scans, talks, workshops, discussions, space for reflection and periods of silence will deepen our experience of metta.

*We are running this event as a smaller socially distanced retreat with just 15 people altogether .  Everyone will have their own bedroom.  Thorough hygiene precautions will be in place.  We are unable to cater for restricted diets at present, apart from gluten free/wheat free.  We suggest that anyone with a serious health condition doesn't attend.  To minimise risks we are asking that all retreatants come by private transport, not public transport, and that you have someone available who could come and pick you up immediately if you became unwell during the retreat.*

Suggested donation (in addition to the booking fee): £325 waged / £205 unwaged

Paying for your retreat

Taraloka runs on generosity.

To book a retreat you pay a booking fee.  This is the only charge made for coming on retreat. We want Taraloka retreats to be available to any woman, whatever her financial situation.

At the end of your retreat, you have the opportunity to give money towards Taraloka.  If you are able to donate, you are giving to another woman who otherwise could not afford to come on retreat.  And you are helping to give the gift of Taraloka to the women of the future.

Suggested donations

Our suggested donations (in addition to the booking fee) for 2019 are (waged/unwaged)

  • Weekend retreats (£140/£95)
  • Long Weekend (3 nights) (£165/£115)
  • 4 night retreats (£190/£120)
  • 5 night retreats (£235/£145)
  • Week retreats: (£325/£205)
  • 9 night retreats (£380/£250)

There will be an opportunity to make your donation at the end of the retreat.  Donations can be made by credit/debit card, cheque or cash.

Those who cannot afford our suggested donations are free to contribute what they can. 

Running on generosity is radical – thank you for being part of that.
