Formal bestowal of Green Tara empowerment (Buddha of Compassionate Activity)
Among the many aspects of Green Tara, as Mother, she offers feelings of safety, acceptance and love. Green Tara heals issues of loneliness, and disconnectedness that might arise from a lack of close family ties, dealing with an unskillful mother or suffering from a mother who has passed away. We can become naturally more gentle, kind and capable, while relating to others and become a better partner, parent, co-worker or friend. This session includes a full moon ceremony with permission to study and perform a Lama Chopa tsok .
Going on Retreat at Lotus Lake Buddhist Center
Daily dharma teachings are held in the spacious dharma hall but there are often informal spontaneous sharings by Rinpoche or senior students over breakfast or lunch. Walk the Kora path around the beautiful lotus pond and take time to quiet your mind and meditate under the watchful care of the retreat master.
Retreat allows you to leave behind daily concerns and focus on personal inner healing and spiritual development. Join with like-minded individuals who are committed to becoming capable of benefiting living beings.
