Our London Centre is a haven of tranquillity in the busy city. London is not usually associated with spirituality, but instead of going to a remote countryside or retreat space, at Tara you can learn to develop that state of centeredness, calm and fulfilment in you, even where there is constant activity.
Reflecting this cosmopolitan city, all ages, nationalities and people – from healers, to lawyers or builders – are part of the community at Tara.
Together we learn to embrace life in all its intensity, and allow all experiences to be fuel for transformation.
While our Centre is a peaceful and welcoming space, we are also full of activity, holding classes every night of the week, as well as meditations, festivals, talks, retreats, courses and parties. We also welcome other groups to use any of our five beautiful rooms.
Just a short walk from Old Street tube station, Tara London has five beautiful rooms available for hire for events, workshops and classes, for all forms of therapy, dance and talks, all with a unique design and feel. There is a large reception area and a small shop selling delicious but healthy snacks, a kitchenette and social seating space.
Hridaya is our largest room, and like our other rooms features dimmable lighting. Hridaya also has ambient coloured mood lighting, and a feature wall which can be easily decorated to create a beautiful atmosphere for your event.
