Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine

With Lama Tsultrim Allione

January 12 - 13, 2019

Registration information to follow

Come transform through the power of the mandala, a universal template of inner and outer wholeness.
Drawing on her experience as a Tibetan Buddhist nun, who became a best-selling author and world-renowned Buddhist teacher, Lama Tsultrim Allione offers a guide to access a previously forbidden aspect of the feminine: the fierce wise dakini, whose juicy potency is needed to meet the gale force winds of the current world situation. In the midst of the #MeToo and #TimeIsUp, we see women rising, coming out of silence into empowerment, but what inner practice can we draw on to stay centered, not get depleted and transform anger into wisdom? This retreat will explore the Mandala of the Five Dakinis, which is a dynamic spiritual model based on 1000-year-old tradition coming from Tibet, where the five obstructive emotional patterns are transformed into wisdom through color, sounds, visualization and an understanding of the five buddha families. This meditation practice gives you a practical method to center yourself and find strength within, while empowering you to be an effective agent of transformation in your world. We will work with meditation, active imagination, sound and mandala drawing during the retreat.
Leave rejuvenated, having found a dynamic community, a meditation practice, and the practical guidance you need to activate your wisdom being, as well as the ability to continue with online programs at Tara Mandala (see taramandala.org).
This retreat is based on Lama Tsultrim Allione’s new book: Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine (publ. Simon and Schuster May 2018) and she will be on hand to sign copies during the retreat.

Attendance of the Friday evening Talk is obligatory for anyone coming to the weekend retreat
