Welcome to Tariki Trust ning site. This site is currently under construction. It always will be. So please join us and help us build an on line Tariki community.

Tariki is about Buddhism and conversations. It is about radical involvement and encounter with life, humanity and the natural environment. This site is a meeting point, a market place in which communication and exchanges take place for the benefit of all.

Tariki Trust offers a place for Buddhist practice and lifestyle. We are interested in living our Buddhism through conversation and debate, developing ways of working based on Buddhist psychology. We have members involved in many fields: community living, social engagement, arts, body and psychological therapies, environmentalism and land management. We offer training programmes in Other-Centred Approach, psychotherapy & Buddhist psychology, environmental therapy, and chaplaincy.

If you are not used to ning sites, they can seem a bit strange. This is an on-line community. To get started here are a few ideas:

  • Read the different sections on this front page
  • Add to discussions to the forum
  • Join groups, read the materials posted in them and add comments or participate in discussions
  • Find out about Tariki events
  • Watch videos and share photos
  • Read other members' profiles, find common interests and message them
  • Write a blog post

Tariki is a young child, a fast mountain stream of an adventure, a vibrant dance with the elements.

BUDDHIST THERAPISTS FORUM: Finding Balance in Difficult Times at The Buddhist House

November 19, 2016 from 10am to 4pm
Finding Balance in Difficult Timeswith Bob Chisholm The world faces a number of serious threats such as climate change, terrorism and perpetual war. Yet the political systems that have been devised to deal with such threats seem only to make them worse. So how do we as individuals respond to these threats? Can we remain active and engaged as responsible citizens while keeping our composure and perhaps even being mindful of our moral and spiritual values? And as counsellors and psychotherapists,…See More

Tariki Trust is a community of people who believe that Buddhism is something which we live, not simply a practice to be done in limited time slots during a busy day.

Buddhism is the spirit which flows in our bones and the beautiful vibrancy of the world we encounter. It is the possibility for awakening to the wonder of the ordinary and to cease searching the ends of the earth for jewels which are already in our posession.

Tariki Trust is a community of people who are interested in learning, ideas, creativity and social responsibility. We believe in practising through concern for others and engagement with life in all its forms.

Not surprisingly many Western therapists tend to gravitate towards Buddhist ideas and, conversely, Buddhists are often interested in exploring how their faith…
