Green Tara Weekend Retreat

Green Tara

This weekend retreat is devoted to the practice of Green Tara, the mother of all Buddhas, who embodies swift and fearless compassion in action, like Akong Tulku Rinpoche whose Tibetan Monastery bears her name. The course will give participants the instruction, authorisation and empowerment needed for practising Green Tara Sadhana.

Suitable for those who have taken Refuge.
