Register Now for Mandala Training Level 1: Meeting the Mandala of the Five Wisdom Dakinis

This retreat offers a journey into the Mandala of the Five Dakinis developed by Lama Tsultrim Allione to bring emotional transformation into alignment with the spiritual path. The mandala creates a sacred geography within the psyche, leading toward the realization of the innate perfection of the world, proven to be healing by western scientific studies. It is a blueprint of wholeness and has as its basic structure the center and four directions, which are represented by the five “families:” five elements, colors, seed syllables, emotions, psychological types, and most importantly five wisdoms.

The mandala works with energy to express the inherent luminosity of all existence, and sacred embodiment as a path to liberation. In this retreat, you will be guided through an exploration of the enlightened feminine and the five manifestations of wisdom through meditation, sound, art, and movement. In addition, you will learn the practice the Five Dakini Mandala.

About Mandala Training

The training offers an exploration through the ancient Buddhist paradigm of the mandala as it applies to both our inner path of transformation and to our outer experience in the world. From the fragmentation of habitual thoughts and emotions, the mandala creates a sacred geography for the psyche leading to the experience of the innate perfection of the world, wholeness, and the five wisdoms. This Mandala Training Program is an experiential program exploring the divine feminine, masculine, and union of both feminine and masculine aspects of our psyche.

In the Mandala Training programs, you will learn a contemporary application of the mandala practice and principles, transforming encumbered emotional patterns into wisdom through integration with sound, art, the five elements (earth, fire, water, air, and space), and especially meditation as they apply to the mandala principle. You will learn about each of the five Buddha families, as well as have the opportunity to focus on one particular family in order to have an in depth experience during each retreat.
