Once There Was and Once There Was Not.... 2019

Friday, October 25, 2019 to Friday, November 1, 2019
Retreat Team: 
Retreat Type: 

Enter the realm of the ocean and explore the significance of an early Inuit tale known as 'Skeleton Woman' - a tale that will be brought to life through story telling and puppetry.  Can we listen to, and be more intimate with, our own response and ‘felt sense’ experience in the moment? Through doing so we can become more aware of who we are, where we have come from and how to move forward creatively into the future. As a collective we will explore the relevance of the tale to our own lives through reflection, group discussion, meditation, ritual, gentle bodywork in nature and our own creativity.

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.
