Transmission of the Mandala of the Five Buddhas – VIRTUAL RETREAT

With Lama Tsultrim Allione

February 27, 2021

A Tara Mandala Virtual Retreat 

Experience transformation through the power of the mandala—a universal map for inner and outer balance, wholeness, and practical awakening. During this virtual teaching, Lama Tsultrim Allione will give the transmission of the Mandala of the Five Buddhas, a practice she developed to bring emotional transformation into alignment with the spiritual path. A template of wholeness, the mandala has as its basic structure the center and four directions, represented by five families of elements, colors, seed syllables, emotions, psychological types, and wisdoms.

The Mandala of the Five Buddhas is for all of us who long to integrate the awakened, sacred, and wise masculine within ourselves. Buddhism sees the enlightened masculine as the capacity to act skillfully and with wise compassion. These are capacities that must be nurtured by all of us, regardless of our gender identity. This mandala practice offers a practical method to awaken the enlightened masculine in all of us by empowering us to bring into balance the mutually supportive inner feminine-masculine unity.

Lama Tsultrim will offer these teachings via Zoom on Saturday, February 27 from 11am to 2pm Mountain Time. 

This offering stands alone and is a powerful complement for anyone who has attended our Wisdom Rising retreats. Though not required, receiving the transmission directly from Lama Tsultrim will empower your practice further. 

Who Should Attend? 

  • This is open to everyone.

To prepare for this retreat, we encourage you to:

What is a Virtual Retreat?

Virtual Retreats are Tara Mandala At-Home intensive retreats, teachings and in-depth workshops during which practitioners receive dharma teachings, engage in guided practice, experience hands-on learning, and connect with other participants through an easy-to-use online platform (Zoom) during consecutive days (with few exceptions) and daylong offerings. This modality of learning is appropriate for practitioners who are able to create a practice container of their own, setting aside a dedicated retreat space, removing themselves from social media, and taking care of necessities with the mind of compassion in action for the specific dates and times that the teachings occur. 

Virtual Retreats are meant to be attended live given that direct transmission (Tib. lung) may be given. However, access to recordings of the sessions are available for additional viewing for various timeframes specified by the price level selected.

Tiered-Prices

Tara Mandala offers tiered pricing for all virtual retreats to allow participants the opportunity to consider offering additional financial support for Tara Mandala while gaining greater access to the recordings of the teachings post-retreat. These are difficult times for everyone, and Tara Mandala is no exception.
