Arbeit

Taraloka hopes to give the volunteers the opportunity to experience living as a community and practising co-operation in living and working together. Women in Taraloka live and work as a specifically Buddhist community and are willing to share what it can look and feel like when living and working from ones deepest values. They will offer the opportunity to learn new practical skills, develop life skills and build confidence through both. They will teach two fantastic meditation practices (which do not make anyone a Buddhist) but which can positively change your life. There will be the opportunity to learn more about Buddhism including ethics, ritual, study, question and answer and personal talks. Again, by attending any of this you are not making yourself Buddhist! The work areas on the project will possibly involve maintenance, decorating and cleaning as well as learning to cook tasty and nutritious vegan meals for the group. In addition to these projects there may be some gardening and landscaping work. This is a work retreat and we are looking for physically fit and healthy women. We hope that the volunteers will have fun working together on these projects as well as meditating together, learning about Buddhism and living as a community. We are offering this opportunity for our volunteers to experience a retreat environment as well as to give their time and energy. We suggest not using your mobile phones and other communication devices during this time. It can be really peaceful and liberating to disconnect from the digital world for a period. Friends and family will be able to contact you on our designated emergency number, should this be necessary during your stay.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

ACCOMMODATION: The retreat centre is mostly level and all communal areas are on the ground floor, with some walk in showers and toilets. Rooms are shared with up to 4 people in a room. Taraloka provides all bedding and bed linen. FOOD: Taraloka provides three well-balanced, nutritious and deliciously tasty vegan meals per day. You will have the chance to learn how to cook this wonderful vegan food while you are there. Please note the retreat centre is totally vegan, please do not bring any meat, fish, or dairy products with you. NB: No alcohol or drugs on site please.

Lage und Freizeit

LOCATION: Close to Whitchurch, Shrewsbury (Shropshire), England near the border with Wales.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Started in 1985, Taraloka is a Women’s Buddhist Community and Retreat Centre of the Triratna Buddhist Community set on the Welsh-Shropshire border. It was a run-down farm that has been gradually renovated, rebuilt and adapted over the years with the help of many different women with many different skills. The importance of providing a context for women in which the practice of meditation and Buddhism could be developed and deepened was a strong motivating factor for everyone who set up this centre. The name Taraloka means realm of Tara. Tara is an archetypal female figure representing the Enlightened qualities of Compassionate Action. Today, the aim of Taraloka is the same. Women go there and explore what meditation can bring into their life; learn something about the relevance of Buddhist teaching to contemporary life; and experience themselves in a different setting to usual.

Arbeit

This camp is timed to help prepare for a meeting of the UK ECO VILLAGES NETWORK (part of the Global EcoVillages Network) which will take place the weekend of 14-15 September. Members of the communities from across the UK will come together for the first time as the GEN WISE network to share their stories, inspiration and solutions to sustainability. Volunteers will do useful jobs for the community such as painting and gardening as part of our ambition to expand our production of community-grown food. It will also assist in the preparation for the network meeting and clearing up after the meeting.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers can sleep in guest rooms indoors or can bring their own tents. The group will cook for themselves in the communal kitchen but will join the community on Friday evenings for their ‘pot-luck’ dinner. Individual members of the community may invite volunteers to their homes.

Lage und Freizeit

LOCATION: Laughton Lodge is outside the village of Laughton about 8 kms east of Lewes. LEISURE: Arriving on the Friday volunteers will work over the weekend and have one day off early in the week. For the weekend of 14th-15th they will have the option of attending the Eco Village meeting or having the time free. Visits can be to the nearby town of Lewes (the castle and Bull House, residence of the revolutionary Tom Paine) and Brighton is not far away. The South Downs are wonderful for those that enjoy walking and the famous seaside cliffs known as the Seven Sisters are worth a visit. Community members at Laughton Lodge will arrange opportunities for yoga and meditation and horse riding or country walks during the course of the camp.
