What We do
The Tara Centre is a not-for-profit healing sanctuary in the heart of Lancaster. We run regular sessions, short courses, workshops and retreats that promote physical, emotional and spiritual health. All of our work is underpinned by the values of friendship, community and kindness.
We are dedicated to increasing access to practices that improve health and wellbeing for individuals and the wider community, and we currently run several community projects. All these projects are staffed by the goodwill and hard work of volunteers. These are:
- Wellbeing Drop-in for Asylum Seekers, Refugees and Volunteer Helpers
- The TLC Clinics (a low cost/no cost health clinic for people living on little or no income)
- Outreach Meditation classes for people living on very little income or living with chronic health conditions
- Forest Gardening Project for Mental Wellbeing and Connection
- Online Community
In addition to the above, during the pandemic we have been running a Community Listening project, a wellbeing Timebank, a walking buddy scheme, online and in person social gatherings, therapy clinics for people in recovery from drug and alcohol use, online wellbeing sessions and outdoor Tai Chi sessions.
