About us

The retreat is an immersion into the five Dakini families, and the transformation of the five emotions into the five wisdoms. This unique retreat was developed to bring emotional work into alignment with spiritual transformation. It involves exploring the emotions using a variety of means including regression, partner work, art work, sound practice, and movement. Experiencing how these energies contain the potential to become embodied wisdom. You will receive transmission for the Mandala of the Five Dakinis and each day is sandwiched with this profound practice within the mandala which is a blueprint for sacred reality on every level. Ritually, aesthetically, and symbolically the mandala expresses, five energies through the directions, colors, seed syllables, emotions, psychological types, and most importantly the five wisdoms.

Mandala der Fünf Dakinis

In diesem Retreat tauchen wir ein in die fünf Dakini-Familien und die Verwandlung der fünf Emotionen in die fünf Weisheiten. Dieses einzigartige Retreat wurde entwickelt mit dem Ziel, emotionale Arbeit in Einklang zu bringen mit spiritueller Transformation. Wir erkunden die Emotionen durch verschiedene Methoden wie z.B. Zeitreise, Partnerarbeit, kreatives Gestalten, Klänge und Bewegung. Wir erfahren das Potential dieser Energien, sich in verkörperte Weisheit zu verwandeln.

Ihr erhaltet die Übertragung für die Praxis mit dem Mandala der Fünf Dakinis, und diese tiefgründige Praxis bildet den Rahmen für jeden Tag innerhalb des Mandalas, eines Modells für die heilige Wirklichkeit auf jeder Ebene. Ritual, Ästhetik und Symbole des Mandalas sind Ausdruck der fünf Energien: durch die Richtungen, Farben, Keimsilben, Emotionen, psychologischen Typen und vor allem durch die fünf Weisheiten.

Depending on accommodation between CHF 255 – 412

Venue Highlights

Bordered by the San Juan National Forest and Southern Ute Tribal Land, Tara Mandala Retreat Center is on 700-acres of rolling hills and meadows adorned with many varieties of wildflowers, ponds, and forests. The land itself is a mandala with a stunning peak in the middle surrounded by four valleys. Retreat cabins are scattered across the landscape designed for deep retreat, and at its heart, is the extraordinary three-story Tara temple which celebrates the sacred feminine.
