Green Tara Online Live Program: July 12 – August 30

“Green Tara’s invitation is to feel more deeply, to open the heart even more courageously.”

~ Magyu Lopön Charlotte Rotterdam

Sustaining our health and well-being can be challenging during these times. Green Tara’s sublime nature is an immunity for our fears and imbalances. Her swift action provides instant relief to our worldly issues. As you relate deeper with her, you discover deeper compassion for yourself and all beings in your life.

We are excited to offer our highly-acclaimed Green Tara Live Online Program with Lama Tsultrim Allione, that begins July 12. Lopön Charlotte Rotterdam will guide you through the 8-week course with 4 live webcasts, including a transmission (lung) of the practice.

We invite you to make a connection with Green Tara.
Early Bird opportunities until Wednesday, July 1st.


What people are saying about the Green Tara Online Program…

“Functional for one’s everyday life and also a deep dive into the transformation of Vajrayana practice. The course content was accessible and Lama Tsultrim and Lopön Charlotte’s explanations and (the) teachings are clear and deeply transformative. The week by week format is useful as it allows time for practice and contemplation. Equally the additional resources, videos and audio recordings are essential to support one in their daily practice. I am forever grateful.”

“The explanations are clear and very dear, relevant and heart-opening. The practice is beautifully demonstrated, the visuals and graphics are exquisite and add to the overall quality of the teachings. A love of Tara is instilled in the teaching process.”

“I continue to be extremely impressed by both the scope and the quality of this course. It is obvious that a lot of care and planning went into both the production and presentation of the lessons. It is accessible by, and valuable for, both beginners to Buddhism and advanced practitioners. The videos themselves come across as ‘sacred’ in the way they are presented. My heartfelt appreciation goes out to the entire Tara Mandala team, and especially to Lama Tsultrim and Lopön Charlotte for a truly memorable … program. My blessings to you all.”

“Making this course available online for those of us who don’t live close to any Tibetan Dharma centers is itself a huge blessing, one that I am very grateful for. I sincerely hope to visit Tara Mandala at some point in the future!”

Helen Selmeczy: “What I loved about the course was the flexibility to do it in my own time, in my own home…”
