Dancing into the Heart of Tara Woodstock July 2017

Friday 14-16 July 2017

Woodstock, NY

A PRECIOUS GIFT: Prema has been given the precious gift of facilitating an evening of sacred dance at Karma Triyana Dharmachakra Monastery, the North American Seat of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa in Woodstock, NY.  https://kagyu.org/event/tara-dance/?instance_id=121 You’re invited. Come be a part of this sacred offering!

ACCOMMODATIONS: The workshop will take place in a homey private residence in an interfaith sacred temple/yurt on honored and respected native american ceremonial grounds just across the street from KTD Monastery on a mountain top next to a hiking trail. Very affordable housing accommodations are available including tenting. We suggest securing your spot soon as possible, as space is limited.

CALLING TARA FROM THE HEART: We’ll go deep this weekend into the teaching of Calling Tara from the Heart, a profoundly moving dance meditation based on a dzogchen sadhana practice of Dudjom Rinpoche. Prema assembled this moving meditation along with Myri Dakini and they share it with heartfelt devotion. The recorded musical arrangement for this piece is sung by Mercedes Bahleda, who offers us a deeply devotional experience.  This dance is a precious jewel!

REGISTER EARLY: Secure your spot. We want you there! The tuition is $145. Housing costs are additional and range in price from $15 a night for camping on up to $50 a night. No one will be turned away for inability to pay to dance. Some work study positions are available. We honor this sacred work, these incredibly life changing practices and our beloved teachers who travel the world to bring us these practices. Please hellp us support the work. Contributions to the scholarship fund are wholeheartedly accepted.


A non-refundable $50 payment is requested to hold your spot. Please let us know if you need housing and we will send you the list of housing options and do our best to assist you in finding a good match for you.
