About This Event
Tara Mandala has become a vibrant international community and a refuge for many who wish to study and practice Dharma. For five decades, Lama Tsultrim’s vision of elevating the empowered feminine in dharma has been a beacon for many, and in 1993, she established Tara Mandala as a home for her vision to flourish. As we step into the future, we recognize how her teachings have set in motion a broader conversation about our role in the world and the impact of personal transformation. Lama’s recent book, Wisdom Rising, invites us to step into this paradigm more fully, to “in-power” ourselves through practice so that we become “empowered” to bring forth healing and equity in the world.
During this celebration, Lama Tsultrim and guests will share powerful stories and teachings about how Tara Mandala can move forward with the profound intention to serve present and future generations of students.
For anyone who would like to stay overnight there are overnight accommodations available. If you are leaving after the days events please choose ‘Event Only’.
This event is open to all. It begins with a mandatory check-in between 9:00 am and 9:30 am.
There will be an opportunity to offer a Kata and Dana to Lama Tsultrim and teachers.
If you would like the option of staying in the Dorm Yurt or Prajna accommodations for this event please email me at (contact info blocked) and I will let you know how to register for your accommodation choice

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.
