‘Form is only emptiness, emptiness only form’ – The Heart Sutra

How can we ‘cut the bonds that cause (us) suffering’?  The Heart Sutra is a radical and classic wisdom-text which goes to the heart of how to become free, and how to help the world become free.  Enigmatic, speaking to our depths, undermining any fundamentalism or limiting views about ourselves, it asks us to dive deep into the nature of experience, looking, for ourselves, to see truly the way things are.   How would it be, if we really realised that we, and all we see around us, was simply flow, change, potential? 

This retreat is ONLY for people who regularly attend Chester, West Wales, Llangollen and Shrewsbury Triratna Sanghas.  All genders welcome. The shrine space on this retreat is a marquee.

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.
