Please join Polly Ryan, MA, Lama Sarah Harding and the Tara Mandala Northern Sierra Sangha for our new twelve-week Chöd Book Study beginning Wednesday, September 5, 2018 from 9 – 10:30 am Pacific Time. Lama Sarah Harding will join us for four of our sessions with dates to be announced.
We will be reading and contemplating the incomparable classic text: Machik’s Complete Explanation: Clarifying the Meaning of Chöd, translated and introduced by Sarah Harding. This examination of Sarah Harding’s translation of Machik’s Complete Explanation: Clarifying the Meaning of Chöd will provide a deepening understanding of the foundations of Chöd. Our sessions will begin with a
meditation session and will be followed by an in-depth discussion of the text assigned for that week.
"One cannot force or grasp a spiritual experience, because it is as delicate as the whisper of the wind." Lama Tsultrim Allione.
Venue HighlightsBordered 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. The center has a Community Building, where residents and retreatants convene for meals, and other activities.
