About This Event
Join us in diving deeply into the wisdom and compassion embodied in this transformative practice. During turbulent times, transformation is being called from within. To wisely rise to the challenges and opportunities in life, we seek community, tranquility, curiosity, courage, and transformation in the midst of challenges.
The DAKINI’S WHISPER Subtle Body Training (DSBT) is deeply rooted in ancient Vajrayana teachings on the five elements, timeless awareness, and Tibetan Yoga (trulkor). This retreat is devoted to therapeutic mind-body-heart training, which interweaves a set of exercises from Tibetan wisdom tradition, meditation, and yoga therapy.
Restore the Wholeness
DSBT offers a unique opportunity for students to explore the dimensions of the mind-body-heart through interdisciplinary tools aimed at healing their relationships to their wholeness.
Integrate Dharma Practice
DSBT is designed to assist practitioners (i.e. Vajrayana and Chö) in integrating Buddhism, advanced Vajrayana techniques, body-oriented disciplines, and spiritual psychology into a skillful practice to balance the body, heart, mind, and awareness, and to rediscover our personal authenticity—who and what we truly are.
DSBT aims to untie the knots in our energy system and open the energy flows of the body. These exercises influence our entire body from the physical to the most subtle and profound energy levels. This integrative approach employs skillful and evidence-based methods for moving toward wholeness on many levels—psychological, physical, spiritual, and interpersonal.
This practice is pragmatic, accessible, and inclusive. We join together a body-oriented, trauma-informed, psychologically-nuanced discipline of yoga and therapy, available in the West, with the Subtle Body practice and profound teachings from the ancient Buddhist Wisdom tradition. The way in which these tools are provided and integrated has a significant impact on their efficacy.
The highlights of the Integrative Mind-Body-Heart Training include:
Introducing the DAKINI Subtle Body Training which incorporates Vajrayana teachings on the five elements and the five-facets of timeless awareness.
Deepening and Embodying Dharma Practice in one’s three-dimensional body.

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.
AccommodationsTara Mandala offers a large residence hall (Prajna Residence Hall) for luxurious accommodations. Rooms have single or double beds. Private or shared bathrooms are available. Toiletries and towels are not supplied, so it is recommended that retreatants please bring their own. Retreatants can stay in one of our two Dorm Yurts. These yurts house 8-10 beds. We also offer a large camp-ground, for those who want to get back to nature for their retreat accommodation. For those who are camping and staying in yurts, showers are available in the Community Building, a short walk away. There are plenty of cubicles in the bathrooms to store your toiletries and personal belongings.
