About This Event
Tibetan master artist Lama Gyurme Rabgye, who painted the beautiful murals in Tara Mandala’s Trikaya Tara Temple, will teach the origin of Tibet’s sacred art and give lessons on how to draw and paint Tibetan Thangkas as a beginner. He will demonstrate how to draw the various deities, namely Green Tara, the female Buddha of compassion as well as how to write the script for the precious Tara mantra. He will explain how to make your own thangka canvas, as well as the proper proportions for Stupas and Mandalas. Lama Gyurme will also give an overview of consecration rituals for Thangkas.
All art supplies will be provided and are included in the retreat price.
This retreat is open to all.

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.
