WHITE TARA RETREAT 2022

White Tara practice represents the feminine energy of the Buddhas infinite compassion. She is said to have originated from the tears of the deity Avalokiteshvara when he wept about the extent and intensity of the suffering experienced by all beings. This Retreat will be held in person at SIBA and online via Zoom.

To be eligible to attend participants must make a commitment to attend the whole retreat.

We are fortunate to be able to receive the Six-Domed White Tara Empowerment online from HH Sakya Gongma Trichen Rinpoche. Receiving this White Tara empowerment will provide an opportunity for students to boost their practice and experience. There will be ample practice and teaching sessions. Lama Choedak Rinpoche will offer remarkably thorough explanations of the symbology of the practice as well as its everyday relevance.

All basic Buddhist meditation techniques will be included in the practice, with special emphasis placed on the creative visualisation meditations of Vajrayana Buddhism. Lama Choedak Rinpoche’s realisation, dedication and experience are transmitted through the heart-warming atmosphere in which this retreat is conducted, as well as the joy and humour he brings, particularly in the question-and-answer sessions.
