Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine

With Lama Tsultrim Allione

June 16 - 17, 2018

Join us for this life-changing meditation retreat and celebration of the Empowered Feminine. Come transform through the power of the mandala, a universal template of inner and outer wholeness.

Drawing on her experience as a Tibetan Buddhist nun, who became a best-selling author and world-renowned Buddhist teacher, Lama Tsultrim Allione offers a guide to access a previously forbidden aspect of the feminine: the fierce wise dakini, whose juicy potency is needed to meet the gale force winds of the current world situation.

In the midst of the #MeToo and #TimeIsUp movement, we see the divine feminine rising, coming out of silence and into empowerment; but what inner practice can we draw upon to stay centered, not be depleted and transform encumbered reactions and habits into wisdom?
This retreat will explore the Mandala of the Five Wisdom Dakinis, which is a dynamic spiritual model based on a 1000-year-old tradition coming from Tibet, where the five obstructive emotional patterns are transformed into wisdom through color, sounds, visualization and an understanding of the five buddha families. This meditation practice gives you a practical method to center yourself and find strength within, while empowering you to be an effective agent of transformation in your world. We will work with meditation, active imagination, sound and mandala drawing during the retreat.

Leave rejuvenated, having found a dynamic community of practitioners, a meditation practice, and the practical guidance you need to activate your wisdom being, as well as the ability to continue with online programs at Tara Mandala (see

Attendance of the talk on June 15 is obligatory for any participants of this retreat.
