Tiratanaloka - coronavirus information

Our programme for 2022 is now available online.

In order to give everyone a chance to book a retreat, we ask you not to book more than one residential retreat. The retreats booking will then open up in January 2022.  If there are spaces at a later date we will advertise them.


Information for 2021
Retreats up until 11th July be all be online.  For retreats after that, we plan to run residential retreats.  However, with the changing conditions, we can't confirm that we will be able to run an in-person retreat until nearer the time.  If we can't open fully, the retreat will be online.  Given the layout of the retreat centre, we’ve made the decision not to try and run socially-distanced residential retreats.
We will decide at least one month beforehand if the retreat will be residential or online.  When you book, we’ll ask you to pay only a deposit for the retreat and we will then ask for the appropriate balance amount when we know the format of the retreat. At that time we will contact all those booked on to let you know whether it will be at Tiratanaloka or online.

There are a lot of factors to take into account when deciding if we can open for residential retreats - vaccine rollout and the trajectory of the COVID-19 virus itself - but we want to reassure you that we will only open our retreat centre doors when it is fully safe to do so.  Our re-opening will be in line with government guidelines and the safety of our retreatants and the team here is of paramount importance.

If you need information about retreats generally, please have a good look at our website to see if you can find it there before contacting the office. Our current situation is generating a lot of admin and we have a small team!

Even if we can re-open in July, we’re expecting to make a substantial loss in 2021.  We’re hugely grateful for all your generosity to date in helping to keep us up and running.  If you feel you could support us by making a donation, you can do so here.

Thank you for your continued support.  We look forward to seeing you in person as soon as it's possible and, until then, online.
With metta
Karunadhi and all the team at Tiratanaloka
