(Online) Dakini Wisdom: Revealing the Feminine in Tibetan Buddhism

with Judith Simmer-Brown
December 12 / 12:00 AM - December 13 / 12:00 AM

New Dates! Moved from October

The practice of meditation uncovers our fundamental wisdom, the intimate understanding of vastness at the heart of experience known as the feminine principle.  In the experience of men and women, this vastness arises as fearless wisdom symbolized by the dakini, the sky-dancing goddess of Tibetan Buddhism.  Through an exploration of the dakini, we may access our own vast wisdom beyond gender--and yet discover new meaning in our embodied, passionate lives as women and men.  This retreat explores the dakini's wisdom lessons through sitting practice, talks and guided meditations, and breakout discussion groups.

Talk I:  The Dakini in Tibetan Buddhism
