Green Tara (Retreat in Nova Scotia)

With Tulku Ösel Dorje

May 26 - 28, 2023

Please join us for a weekend immersion in the profound teachings and practice of Green Tara, the female buddha of compassion. Green Tara swiftly provides protection from fear and suffering. She sits with one foot in the meditative posture and one foot in the world.

We will connect with the luminous compassion of Green Tara and our own innate, awakened heart through deity visualization, mantra recitation, mudras, musical offering and feast offering.

This retreat is open to everyone, new and seasoned students alike. There are no prerequisites.
