Saturday – Talk on Feeding Your Demons®: Ancient Wisdom for Resolving Inner Conflict
Inspired by the ancient practice of Chöd from the 11th Century Tibetan teacher Machig Labdron, “Feeding Your Demons” is a five-step process created by Lama Tsultrim Allione that allows one to offer compassion and understanding to one’s own inner demons rather than engaging in struggle with them. This revolutionary paradigm shift has both personal and collective implication of feeding not fighting that which assails us. The method develops the potential for deep healing and allows the psyche to move from polarization toward integration. The process is of great benefit when working with a wide variety of both personal demons, including anxiety, depression, addictions, chronic pain, fear, anger, relationship challenges, and other challenges of contemporary life. This talk will include a substantial experiential component and allow for a questions and answer period.
Sunday Intensive with Lama Tsultrim – Transform Your Emotional Patterns with the Five Dakinis
In this intensive, you’ll meet the energies of the “five dakinis,” the dancing embodiments of feminine wisdom in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. These dakinis manifest the sacred feminine energy that has been stripped from many religions and cultures — energy that is so desperately needed in the world today. You will meet the Mandala of the Five Dakinis, helping you to transform five constricting emotional patterns into power and strength.
This intensive is based on Lama Tsultrim Allione’s new book: Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine (Simon & Schuster May 2018).
Lama Tsultrim Allione is founder and resident lama of Tara Mandala. She is author of Women of Wisdom and Feeding Your Demons. Born in New England to an academic/publishing family, she traveled to India in her late teens and was ordained as a Buddhist nun at the age of 22…
