Course with transmission taught by Acharya Judith Simmer-Brown by video, with workshop in French led by Gisèle Laberge.


Prerequisite: being a member of a Shambhala Center


White Tara is one of the most famous compassion deities in Tibetan Buddhism. Sadhana is a Sanskrit word for "means of accomplishment". In this case, practicing White Tara sadhana stimulates the development of our innate qualities of peace and compassion. Tara is particularly called upon during times of great turbulence, domestic and community conflicts.


The practice includes meditation, visualization, mantra recitation, and creation and completion practices. The Aspiration and Supplication to Tara, written by Chögyam Trungpa before his departure from Tibet, is added to the sadhana composed by Sakyong Mipham in 2004.


A course with transmission (lung in Tibetan) requires participation in every class. For a special situation and with the teacher’s approval, a recording can be made available.


Note: Once the course is completed, only a person who has taken refuge can obtain the text of the sadhana and practice individually. However, this text is always offered during group practices which take place several times a month.


Classes are taught from 10:00 to 13:00 Montreal time.
