Tiratanaloka - coronavirus information

If you are booked on an upcoming retreat at Tiratanaloka you may be wondering whether it will be running and what the situation here is.   As you'll be aware, it's not currently possible for us to hold retreats here.

We have taken the decision to cancel further retreats here until the end of June.   If government restrictions change, we will review the situation.

We appreciate that this is an anxious time for all of us and we will review this information regularly.  The team here send our best wishes to everyone, hope you are staying safe and well and that you're managing to stay connected to the sangha in whatever ways possible.  There are many online resources to keep you in touch, including here https://thebuddhistcentre.com/stories/toolkit/.

We are offering a series of online study weeks from Mon-Sat up until 27th June and these are now available to book on line.  We will also be offering a led session of the Going for Refuge and Prostration Practice each afternoon Mon-Fri from 20 April - 22 May and then again from 8 - 26 June.  Details on how to register for this can be found here.

As I'm sure you can imagine, these are anxious times for retreat centres as all of our income comes from running retreats and it's hard to know when we will be able to do this again.  Although other businesses will be encouraged to re-open over the coming months, running retreats while maintaining social distancing is probably not an option so we are going to have to manage over the coming months by spending our reserves.  If you feel you could support us by making a donation, you can do so here.

With thanks and metta,
