Spring Equinox Green Tara Retreat

With Lama Tsultrim Allione and Lopön Charlotte Rotterdam

March 23 - 26, 2017

Join us for the Spring Equinox to embody Green Tara, the female Buddha of compassion, who provides protection from fears and obstacles. She 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 retreat you will learn the Green Tara practice from the Luminous Secret Vajra Treasury, a treasure cycle of Adzom Drukpa.

This is a required retreat for the Magyu Mother Lineage Program.
