'Compassion is that which makes the heart of the good move at the pain of others.'
The Buddha

What is the Buddha's teaching on compassion? 
What does modern science tell us about it? 
How can we have compassion for ourselves in our daily lives? 
How can we nourish ourselves while caring for others even in difficult circumstances? 
How can we respond more compassionately to the suffering in the world without being overwhelmed by it?

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.

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

  • Weekend retreats (£140/£95)

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.

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