Embodying Tara Retreat Meditation, Mantra, and Yoga Workshop (Retreat in Germany)

With Dorje Lopön Chandra Easton

July 4 - 7, 2024


Tara, the female buddha of compassion, is called the “Savioress” because she is known for saving beings from the ocean of samsara (suffering). Her name also means “star” as she is as infinite as the stars in the sky.

Ultimately, she represents the essential nature of your own mind, your buddha-nature, and because of this she can manifest in each and every one of us in a myriad of different ways.

The twenty-one aspects of Tara appear in the 11th century tantric text called the Twenty-One Praises to Tara, a devotional hymn popular in Tibetan Buddhism, from which Chandra’s book, Embodying Tara, draws its teachings and practices.

You will learn meditations and mantras for some of the Taras, as well as hear stories of real life women who embody their qualities. They will inspire you to bring these aspects of Tara alive in yourself, bringing your body, mind, and soul into alignment with your own enlightened nature.

You will have the opportunity to get your copy of Lopön Chandra’s book “Embodying Tara: Twenty-One Manifestations to Awaken Your Innate Wisdom” signed by her during the retreat.

We will invite Tara’s awakened energy to come alive in ourselves through:

  • Insight into core Buddhist concepts and teachings;
  • Guided Tara meditations;
  • Mantra recitation and chanting;
  • Gentle therapeutic yoga
  • Dyad (mindful relational) practice.
  • Exploration of the lives of real women and social movements that embody Tara’s enlightened activities.
