About This Event
You have engaged in mindfulness practices and enjoyed a deep level of self-connection, yet you find it challenging to apply your inner experiences on the cushion into the current daily expressions of divisiveness, bigotry and violence in our world. You may feel emotions ranging from anger and frustration to powerlessness and despair. How can your practice have an impact on social change?
There is an inner knowing that tells you you are needed at this time in history. It is true—you are needed in your divine feminine form as an agent of compassion, power, and clarity. You are needed as an awake being, who can integrate your spiritual practices into the important conversations and actions we need to have around issues of race, privilege, and oppression.
Through guided meditations, dharma talks, conscious communication inquiry, yoga, dance, and generative writing, you will awaken the enlightened and empowered feminine within you.
Come to this women’s retreat to
Embody the wisdom of the Mandala of the Five Wisdom Dakinis, a practice developed by Lama Tsultrim Allione. This is a core practice in the Wisdom Rising movement that Lama Tsultrim founded.
Find your authentic voice and expression to raise awareness and mindfulness to engage in healing conversations about shared power and acceptance.
Compassionately uncover and share your own experience of confronting authority, race, privilege, and oppression.
Transform obstacles to this process of empowerment and healing through Feeding Your Demons®.

Unlock your creativity and learn ways of telling your authentic story.
Develop strategies and an action plan to take this work into your life and the world.
Together, we can walk the world embodying our feminine power and stand up for equality, compassion, and understanding.
The Tibetan practice of Chöd will be offered as a healing ceremony. Listening to Chöd provides an opportunity for healing on a deep level. Those who know the Namkhai Norbu Chöd, please bring your practice materials.
Please bring comfortable clothes for movement practices and meditation.
This retreat is open to all who identify as women.

"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.
