Banyen's Description: 

 A practical guide for invoking the power and blessings of Tara, the beloved female Buddhist deity of Tibet

"Tara connects you to the archetypal Divine Feminine," writes Dr. Rachael Wooten, "an energetic force that exists within us and all around us." While there are many scholarly books on Tara, this practical, psychological guide shows how those of any tradition can directly access her, through clear instruction and authentic Tibetan Buddhist teachings.

In her myriad forms, Tara—also known as the female Buddha of Tibet—has the power to protect us from inner and outer negativity, illuminate our self-sabotaging habits, cleanse mental and physical poisons, open us to abundance, give us strength and peace, help us fulfill our life purposes, and more. Here, readers explore each of the 21 manifestations of Tara, engaging with each through traditional meditations, visualizations, praises, mantra chants, and the author's extensive experience as a depth psychologist.

Along with detailed practice instructions, I will share stories from my life and the lives of friends, colleagues, clients, and Tara devotees to illustrate how meditating on Tara helps with our common struggles to attain spiritual and psychological maturity—challenges such a claiming personal authority, spiritual development, shadow work, isolations, shame, self-judgment, fear, and projection. You will learn key principles to empower your meditations.

"If ever the voice of wisdom and compassion was needed in the form of an awakened female figure such as Tara," writes Wooten, "that time is now." This book illuminates the way to her healing, blessings, and aid.

Rachel Wooten is a psychologist and a Zurich-trained Jungian analyst. She has been mentored by spiritual teachers such as her Tibetan root guru Lodro Tulku Rinpoche and Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi.
