Young Women's Weekend 2022: An Ever-Widening Circle

Friday, June 17, 2022 to Sunday, June 19, 2022
Retreat Team: 
Retreat Type: 

What would it be like to live our lives as an ever widening circle? An all-encompassing circle from which compassion and love radiate out into the world without discrimination? 

During this weekend we'll gather together to explore the theme of circles, non-linearity and inclusivity in our practice and our friendships, looking at both the compassion and wisdom aspects of the Dharma Life. Through talks on the theme, discussion, ritual and the practice of metta bhavana, we'll move towards a more expansive, compassionate and joyful way of connecting to the world where in the words of poet Kenneth White 'the circumference beckons from everywhere'.

A weekend for young women and non-binary people in their 20s and early 30s

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.
