EVENT CANCELLED: Lama Tsultrim Allione


Due to unexpected, though auspicious, circumstances, Lama Tsultrim has had to cancel/postpone her visit to Vancouver and return to Tara Mandala. We hope to welcome her to Vancouver in the future at the opportune time.

The event had been scheduled for

Wednesday, July 11, 2018
6:30pm to 8:00pm

This evening talk is based on Lama Tsultrim Allione’s new book: Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine. A dynamic spiritual model based on 1000-year-old tradition from Tibet meets the gale force winds of the current world situation. She masterfully shows us the secret to harnessing the energy of the fierce wise dakini a previously forbidden aspect of the feminine, whose juicy potency is so needed now. Through the Dakini Mandala, a universal template of wholeness, each of the five dakinis, embodiments of the fierce feminine, transforms an emotional encumbrance into wisdom. The mandala brings strength from the inside out giving a practical method to become an effective agent of transformation in your world.

During this talk after an introduction to the mandala and the dakini principle you will be guided in a short experiential journey into the mandala of your innermost being, where the empowered feminine resides.

Wisdom Rising has received praise from Deepak Chopra, Eve Ensler, Joan Halifax, Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield, Tenzin Palmo, Ram Dass, Shiva Rea, Krishna Das, & more.
