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.

Venue Highlights

Bordered 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.

Accommodations

Tara 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.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
