Wisdom Rising Expands: New Onsite and Online Retreats

“Meditating on the mandala is a tool or template for reintegration … The psyche that has moved into dualistic fragmentation experiences reunion.”

Journey into the Dakini Mandala: A Meditation and Writing Retreat

With Lopön Karla Jackson-Brewer and Ranjini George • May 20 – 24

As writers, how do we create a spine, a necklace, to hold our story together? How do we create a compelling narrative to tell the story that we long to tell? Through meditation and work with the Five Wisdom Dakini Mandala we will deeply experience the feminine expression of transformation, and discover ways to stay inspired and cultivate the discipline, energy, and one-pointed attention that is necessary to bring anything to accomplishment: a novel, a memoir, a poem, a story — and an awakened and compassionate life. Recommended: for those interested in Writing, Contemplative Practice, Philosophy. Read more »
