Ever since the Tara Centre was opened in 1996, the practice of meditation as part and parcel of everyday life has been facilitated as a “user-friendly” approach to the deepening of “healing, peace and holistic well-being” in our lives.

In recent years the practice of mindfulness, closely associated with Eastern spirituality and in particular Zen Buddhism, has put down deep roots in the West. At Tara we have always approached the teaching of meditation from a generic perspective which respects each participant’s world view and spiritual orientation.

In recent years, we have adapted our programme to include an appropriate emphasis on core elements of mindfulness within the broad canvas of the universal, age old multi-faceted generic approach to the practice of meditation which has been the context within which we offer our teaching.

Tea & Coffee provided from 7.00pm-7.30pm during Registration

“Mindfulness practice means that we commit fully
in each moment to be present;
inviting ourselves to interface with this moment in full awareness, with the intention to embody as best we can
an orientation of calmness, mindfulness,
and equanimity right here and right now.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn

    Registration Fee

    Full payment can be made at the time of your booking. Alternatively, a £10 non-refundable registration fee secures your place at the event of your choice. The balance is payable any time up to and including registration on the day of the event.

    A place will be reserved if you have either paid the full course fee or a registration fee. Occasionally the Tara Centre will offer a waiting list if a course is fully subscribed. In this event and if you wish to be placed on this list, you will be notified if a place becomes available, up to 24 hours before or on the morning of the event.

    You are responsible for booking your own place at each course. If you know of anyone wishing to book a place, please ask that they contact Reception directly. We cannot accept multiple bookings.

    Eligibility for concessionary fees may be discussed in confidence with the Chief Executive Officer.

    Cancellation Policy

    If you need to cancel your booking, we require 7 days’ notice before the event. We may then be able to offer the place to someone if there is a waiting list. The Centre reserves the right to cancel or change details of any event should unforeseen circumstances require this. In the event of the Centre cancelling a course, fees/deposits will be returned in full.
