About This Event
The annual Drubchen (Great Accomplishment Ceremony) of the White Dakini practice from Do Khyentse’s Dzinpa Rangdröl (Self-Liberation from Fixation) treasure cycle will be performed at Tara Mandala. This lineage comes directly from Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche to Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche to Lama Tsultrim Allione. We will experience a traditional empowerment and we will be led through an in-depth process of learning and practicing the White Dakini mandala. This practice is the union of Machig Labdrön and Yeshe Tsogyel surrounded by the dakinis of the five families. In addition to precious teachings from Drüpon Lama Karma and Lama Tsultrim, Lopön Beth will help frame the experience through discussion and teachings during the first two days (July 30-August 1) of introductory teachings.
The use of dharma attire is requested.
This retreat is open to all.

"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.
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.
