Tara Mandala Rising: Celebrating 25 Years

With Lama Tsultrim Allione and Drubpön Lama Karma

July 6 - 7, 2019

Tara Mandala has become a vibrant international community and a refuge for many who wish to study and practice Dharma. For five decades, Lama Tsultrim’s vision of elevating the empowered feminine in dharma has been a beacon for many, and in 1993, she established Tara Mandala as a home for her vision to flourish. As we step into the future, we recognize how her teachings have set in motion a broader conversation about our role in the world and the impact of personal transformation. Lama’s recent book, Wisdom Rising, invites us to step into this paradigm more fully, to “in-power” ourselves through practice so that we become “empowered” to bring forth healing and equity in the world.

During this celebration, Lama Tsultrim and guests will share powerful stories and teachings about how Tara Mandala can move forward with the profound intention to serve present and future generations of students.

For anyone who would like to stay overnight there are overnight accommodations available. If you are leaving after the days events please choose ‘Event Only’.
