Green Tara Retreat
With Magyu Lopön Charlotte Rotterdam
April 23 - 27, 2020
Green Tara sits with one foot in the meditative posture and one foot in the world, thus embodying active compassion and serving as a model for modern day contemplative life.
In this retreat you will have the opportunity to:
- Learn to embody Green Tara, the female Buddha of compassion, who provides protection from fears and obstacles.
- Learn the Green Tara practice from the Luminous Secret Vajra Treasury, a treasure cycle of Adzom Drukpa.
Who Should Attend?
- This retreat is open to all.
- This is a required retreat for the Magyu Mother Lineage Program.
Important Notice: If you are intending to drive and have a 2 wheel drive vehicle it is advised that you have one set of snow chains for your front tires to access Tara Mandala for this retreat. There are parts of Burns Canyon Road USFS #649 that are likely to still be covered with ice at this time of the year. We will send you an update on road conditions closer to the time also.
Suggested Dana Range $150 – $250
What is Dana?
Dana is a Pali word meaning “generosity.” As one of the six paramitas or “perfections,” the practice of generosity is an integral part of the Buddhist path. Dharma teachings are traditionally offered on the basis of dana which is offered to a teacher in recognition of the precious gift that has been given. Tara Mandala compensates teachers by only covering their travel and room and board while teaching. Tara Mandala suggests a range of dana for each retreat, based on the number of days in which the retreat will take place. There is an opportunity to give dana upon registration directly to the teacher(s) or at the end of each retreat, which is a special time of honoring what has been given and what has been received.
