We circle to celebrate.

We circle to connect with one another, with ourselves, and with all beings.

We circle to pray for the well being of all.

May all beings be well and at peace.

In this workshop the dancers are led into a mandala of dance, instructed in the subtlety of sacred movement and mudra. They learn experiential the philosophy, meditations, and visualizations of the traditional Tantric Buddhist practices of the 21 Praises of Tara.

Our weekend is designed to facilitate an opportunity to dive deeply into the practices while remaining spacious and with a focus on nourishment for weary body, hearts, and souls in a world so full of intensity.
