    Tara is a Buddhist female deity of compassion who helps practitioners overcome their fears and anxieties. Although she arises in many colours, her most popular energies manifest as peaceful White Tara, who brings healing, long life and tranquillity; and the dynamic Green Tara, who overcomes obstacles, grants wishes and saves beings in situations of adversity. The practice of Tara is for all of us…

    "One is not polishing one's shooting style or technique, but the mind. The dignity of shooting is the important point. This is how Kyudo differs from the common approach to archery.... The point is that through long and genuine practice your natural dignity as a human being comes out. This natural dignity is already in you, but it is covered up by a lot of obstacles. When they are cleared away,…

    This weekend retreat is open to all practitioners—newer students and tantrikas—who wish to deepen their meditation practice. Mahamudra, the "great symbol," is among the most profound traditions of vajrayana Buddhism, but it is also extremely simple and direct. This retreat will be a pre-vajrayana introduction. We will deepen the practices of shamatha and vipashyana meditation to look at the…

    All beings possess natural goodness, kindness and intelligence, noble qualities inherent in each of us. The Shambhala dharma is about gaining confidence in these innate qualities by means of meditation and infusing this confidence into our everyday lives. While this is true for everyone, the LBGTQ community faces particular challenges within society; this can be both an inspiration and an obstacle…

    “Shambhala meditation is synchronizing with our own genuineness; it is the act of being. Through this process we discover reality with three gestures - feeling, being, and touching... the mind progressively develops strength and trust in basic goodness, finally reaching full saturation with its own understanding and experience. When we have a strong mind, no matter what thoughts occur, we…

We have become slave to the powerful, seemingly omnipresent master of our personalities, known as the ‘Thinking Mind’. While the experience of being lost in thought is epidemic and untethered discursiveness has become chronic, there are ways we can regain…
