International Kadampa Buddhist retreat centre

We are a registered charity and based in a Victorian mansion built in the 1850s. Located in rural Derbyshire we are close to the Dales and Peak District. We have around 35 residents spread across the main building, apartments and houses. We are mixed community of ordained and lay people and families. We host around 5 - 15 volunteers. Our extensive grounds have 38 acres of gardens and parkland, with a small river and woodland walk. The environment is very beautiful, tranquil and restful and is perfect for meditation and reflection.

There are many local walks, a nature reserve and cycle paths. You can also access the Dales and Peak District National Park for days out. The city of Derby is just 8 miles away. Birmingham, Nottingham and Leicester are all within one hour travel.

My experience at Tara was wonderful. It was two weeks of a lot of learning and unique exchanges! I learned about Kadampa Buddhism, meditation techniques and also met incredible people among volunteers, managers, residents, monks and visitors. The work is varied and you will help in the Café, kitchen, household and gardening. You can always participate in classes and meditations in your free time. You will be also able to enjoy the beautiful gardens and to enjoy the wonderful food! I recommend this experience to everyone! Tara Team, thank you again for the opportunity!

I had the opportunity to contribute to various jobs, meet different people, learn about Buddhism, take part in meditations and many other incredible experiences. I'm very grateful for the great times I've had at Tara and I'm very grateful to Sam, Donna, Ximena, Nathalie and everyone else for their attention, care and help throughout.
I recommend it to everyone !!!!!

The 2 weeks I spent at Tara were excellent! I met incredible people, not only volunteers, but also residents, monks and visitors to the Retreat. The space is very open to exchanges and sharing experiences, and you can also participate in classes and meditation sessions when you are not working. The work is generally divided between the Café, household, grounds and kitchen, 6 hours a day. In your free time, besides participate in meditations, you can enjoy the beautiful garden, or enjoy with friends in the common areas. I recommend it 110%! It's a life-changing experience

My time here has been some of my best ever while traveling! The grounds are lovely, and all of the people who live and work here are the absolute best!! Every volunteer I met was fantastic as well and I have made new lifelong friends. I have nothing but love for every single person I met! I don't have enough good things to say about this place and if I had time would absolutely extend my stay! Keep in mind the hours are fairly long so it does start to feel like a full time job time commitment wise but if you are ok with that for sure come! Absolutely amazing and I will definitely be back!!

I simply can’t say enough good things about my experience! The grounds and accommodation are beautiful, comfortable, clean and safe. The residents and volunteers are some of the most genuine and kind people I’ve ever met! The work hours and responsibilities are clearly communicated, well organized and perfectly reasonable. As volunteers, we were able to participate in the retreats, meditations and prayers any time we’re not working which was such a treat! I would HIGHLY recommend this volunteer opportunity to anyone looking to meet new people, or take some time for spiritual exploration!
