What is it to be fully aware, fully alive? Here is a great conversation with the retreat team from Taraloka, who are about to lead our online Home Retreat around the relief and ease of being in the present moment – whatever that present moment looks like.
Join in with Alive, Aware, Awake - a Home Retreat for everyone!
Experience can be an adventure in awareness. How can we taste the deep excitement of opening to the nature of reality itself – right here, right now? Rooted in a thorough exploration of the Buddha's teaching on the four foundations of mindfulness, this a delightful evocation of how freedom of the heart is available to anyone.
Taraloka is a women’s Buddhist retreat centre, founded in 1985. Ever since, they've been offering a breadth and depth of retreats for all levels of experience. But with coronavirus they’ve had to shut the buildings and go online to offer what they do to everyone across the globe, while still living and working as a residential community through lockdown.
We hear how the crisis has brought out the best in the community. And the spirit of Taraloka's approach to Dharma practice - and of their beautiful Welsh retreat centre - comes across strongly. The qualities of Green Tara made manifest as part of a lineage of women sharing, practising, handing on the Dharma.
