Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine

This evening talk will be an introduction into Lama Tsultrim Allione’s new book: Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine to be published by Simon and Schuster in May 2018. Lama Tsultrim’s new book 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. ‘Nasty woman’ Trump’s insult turned to an empowerment slogan, translates into a dynamic spiritual model based on 1000-year-old tradition coming from Tibet. Through the Dakini Mandala, a universal template of wholeness, each of the five Dakinis transforms an emotional pattern into wisdom. In these challenging times we need an effective practice that enables us to find strength and wholeness within, to become an effect agent of change and wisdom.

During this talk after an introduction to the mandala and the dakini principle you will be guided on an experiential journey into the mandala of your innermost being, where the empowered feminine resides—the essence of your wisdom, vitality, and radiance. Here, you’ll find inspiration in an ancient meditation path that allows you to experience the power of the mandala in your own body and a vision of how to take that into your world.  Lama Tsultrim will personally sign books at the end of the talk.

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.

Panel:  Discussion Embody Feminine Wisdom – 4 powerful women from different backgrounds

Unique opportunity: Lama Tsultrim Allione, Dr. Scilla Elworthy, Ida Resi Alit and Katiza Satya together in conversation on how to bring the receptivity of the feminine back into balance with the power of the masculine. Be inspired on how to co-create new paradigms of thinking  toward a more peaceful future.

This conversation will be moderated by Deborah Quibell, teacher, writer and healer with a doctoral degree in Depth Psychology – a scholarly mystic who is utterly in love with the more-than-human world. Get to know your own mind and discover how a slight but radical shift can transform your life.

"One cannot force or grasp a spiritual experience, because it is as delicate as the whisper of the wind." Lama Tsultrim Allione.
