White Tara Retreat, Villa Sumaya, Guatemala

January 3, 2016 January 16, 2016 UTC-8

White Tara: She who liberates upon Seeing, is a profound ancient meditative practice in Tibetan Buddhism. According to Tibetan Tales, White Tara and Green Tara were born from the two tears that Chenrezi she when he saw the suffering state of beings in the world.

While White Tara is a central Yidam to the Karma’s and prominent in many Lineages, her ability to break through repetitive patterns, penetrate fear states and fight back illness to prolong life are her hallmarks. Through the drumming energy of her Mantra, she brings the moon and the sun energies together for health and liberation. 

Please join Lama Mark in the new year with a two week exploration of White Tara. This retreat is suitable for both beginners and experienced practitioners. In the tropical region of Laka Atitlan, surrounded by three volcanoes, we will explore the healing energy of White Tara to assist all beings to greater health and freedom.

We are very fortunate to be holding this retreat at the beautiful spiritual centre: Villa Sumaya


Price includes: accommodation for 13 nights, 3 vegetarian meals per day, unlimited tea, coffee, and filtered water, use of the temples, hot tub and all taxes.
