Tara Mandala’s 30th Anniversary (In Colorado)

With Lama Tsultrim Allione

August 2 - 4, 2024

Join Lama Tsultrim and the Tara Mandala community as we joyously commemorate our 30-year anniversary at Tara Mandala’s retreat center in Colorado this Summer. 

A special weekend celebration will take place from August 2nd to the 4th, and include: powerful rituals that honor Tara Mandala’s founders and teachers, sharing stories and meals, music and dancing, and, of course, practicing together!

The culmination of this momentous occasion will be the auspicious offering by Lama Tsultrim of Machig Labdrön’s Empowerment, followed by the beauty of nighttime Chöd practice on Prayer Flag Ridge led by Tara Mandala’s senior teachers. 

Stay tuned as we announce other exciting activities in the coming months! 

We have waived all program fees for the entire celebration weekend to make it possible for as many Sangha members as possible to attend. Room and board fees will apply for those who wish to stay on the land. Your support helps our global practice community and retreat center continue to flourish and grow for the next 30 years and beyond. We are grateful for all donations made in honor of Tara Mandala’s 30th Anniversary. Donate here.

Please feel welcome to contact our Registrar at registrar@taramandala.org if you would like to register for this event, but your desired accommodation is unavailable. We do have a waitlist going and possible alternative options in development.

Registration for this event closes on Tuesday, July 30, 2024 at 10:00am (MDT).
