Celebrate Earth Day With Us!

Honoring Earth Day

“The reemergence of Tara’s energy… and her compassion are essential for the earth and all people right now.”

~ Lama Tsultrim Allione, from the Green Tara Commentary

Onsite Retreat

Come to the beautiful land of Tara Mandala to immerse yourself in nature of mind teachings and practices inspired by the great 11th Century Tibetan yogini Machig Labdrön. Resting our bodies on the earth, we learn to “rest the mind in the way of the sky.”

Recognizing our inseparability from the ground of being, we realize that we cannot discard anyone or anything. As we cultivate radical acceptance, we move beyond the constrictions of the isolated self and open to our inescapable and empowered relationship with others.

For those who’ve joined us for our online Skymind courses – we’d love to see you in person! This is a unique retreat that will deepen your Skymind journey. We’ll introduce verses not covered in previous courses and dive deeper into some of our favorite gems …

We look forward to joining you in the worldwide celebrations of Earth Day and sharing all the ways we honor, heal, and learn from the Earth together.

~ With Blessings,
The Tara Mandala Family
