White Taraā€”a beloved meditational deity in the Indo-Tibetan traditionā€”is an expression of the qualities of wisdom, positive potential, and longevity in the form of a dynamic female buddha. Her practices, used and transmitted by many Buddhist lineage holders, provide us with a powerful set of tools for connecting with our basic goodness, strengthening both our compassion and wisdom, and changing the overall interdependence within which our experiences unfold.

This 3-hour session with Tibetan Buddhist translator Michael Lobsang Tenpa will include guided meditations and elaborate explanations aimed at establishing two facts: this practice is ancient and profound, and yet it is also fully accessible to anyone who is inspired to do it.

We will explore the historical context, analyse the visual and psychological significance of White Taraā€™s appearance, and experiment with different aspects of practice, all to establish a firm foundation for personal or group practice in the future.
