Wisdom Rising: Journey Into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine | Die 5 Dakinis: Die himmlischen Kräfte des Buddhismus

About This Event

This evening talk is based on Lama Tsultrim Allione’s new book: Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine. A dynamic spiritual model based on 1000-year-old tradition from Tibet meets the gale force winds of the current world situation. She masterfully shows us the secret to harnessing the energy of the fierce wise dakini a previously forbidden aspect of the feminine, whose juicy potency is so needed now. Through the Dakini Mandala, a universal template of wholeness, each of the five dakinis, embodiments of the fierce feminine, transforms an emotional encumbrance into wisdom. The mandala brings strength from the inside out giving a practical method to become an effective agent of transformation in your world.

During this talk after an introduction to the mandala and the dakini principle you will be guided in a short experiential journey into the mandala of your innermost being, where the empowered feminine resides.

Followed by book signing.

An diesem Abend stellt die amerikanische Meisterin Lama Tsültrim Allione ihr neues Buch vor. (deutscher Titel: „Die Fünf Dakinis: Die himmlischen Kräfte des Buddhismus“). Sie beschreibt, wie das Mandala, das ein dynamisches spirituelles Denkmodell der 1000jährigen tibetischen Tradition ist, auch äußerst hilfreich in den stürmischen Zeiten unserer heutigen Welt sein kann. Denn das Mandala kann als ein universelles Modell der Ganzheit verstanden werden, bei dem die Identifikation mit den fünf Dakinis – den Verkörperungen des zornvollen Weiblichen – konflikterzeugende Emotionen in Weisheit verwandeln kann. Nach einer Einführung in dieses tiefgründige Denkmodell mit einem besonderen Fokus auf dem Dakini-Prinzip wird LamaTsültrim Allione eine meditative Reise ins Zentrum des Mandala anleiten. Nach der Veranstaltung gibt es eine Signierstunde. Bitte bis zum (contact info blocked)! Übersetzung aus dem Englischen.

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. The center has a Community Building, where residents and retreatants convene for meals, and other activities.

      Retreats

    It’s a very special place to participate in retreats, whichever! The whole surroundings of land and people living and working there makes it what it is , a place to learn, practice and live there and of course the presence of two Lamas . A chance to change in a positive way , even crusted staff has a chance to solve.

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)
