Green Tara: Self-Paced Program

With Lama Tsultrim Allione and Dorje Lopön Charlotte Rotterdam

Open Dates

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 self-paced program, you have the opportunity to learn to embody Green Tara, the female Buddha of compassion, who provides protection from fears and obstacles.

Key Features

  • Green Tara is the female emanation of compassion and swift-acting skillful means.

What Will I Learn?

  • Learn the basics of a traditional Tibetan Buddhist practice – known as a sadhana.

  • This Green Tara sadhana is from a concise terma (revealed teaching) from Ösel Dorje Sangdzö, the “Luminous Secret Vajra Treasury,” as taught by Adzom Drukpa.

Who Is This Course For?

  • For both beginning and seasoned practitioners, Green Tara is one of the most profound yet simple practices of Tibetan Buddhism.
  • Perfect for men, women, and those who identify as non-binary, who are looking to bring the energy of compassion more fully into their lives.
  • Completion of this program fulfills the requirement for Magyu: The Mother Lineage practitioners.
