Turning towards the Transcendent: Area Order Weekend June 2022

Thursday, June 9, 2022 to Sunday, June 12, 2022

Retreat Type: 

Love, compassion and wisdom are woven into the fabric of existence: how do we let these qualities emerge and transform us? The ways are many. What was it like to be in the presence of the historical Buddha, experiencing a subtle resonance with the beauty of his being and with our true human potential? And what can the evocative symbolism of Maitreya – Buddha of the future and Buddha of our own potential – tell us about the possibility of Awakening in any moment of our ordinary lives?  


There will be a public ordination on the first evening – how wonderful! The weekend will include presentations, discussion, contemplation and ritual and thus opportunities for indoor and outdoor practice in the sacred space of Taraloka.


The event will be held in the main Taraloka shrine room, with indoor and camping accommodation options available.

*Please read and ensure you are able to comply with Taraloka's COVID 19 precautions BEFORE booking your retreat. *

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.

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