Tara Dance Offering

at the

Parliament of World Religions

An Offering For Unity On Planet Earth

Information/Registration contact- Parvati

The details for this event are still coming into to full form as the Parliament committee is still settling the workshop schedule.  If you are interested please let Parvati know and she will be sure you know when the Tara events are happening.

In 2015 Parvati had the honor and joy of leading the Tara Mantra dance as part of the Dances of Universal Peace sessions at the Parliament of World Religions and it was a truly ecstatic and powerful experience.

This gathering of thousands of hearts and hands from all around the world and all world traditions with a commitment to global unity, healing, transformation, education is a unique and important conference of many of the world’s leading activists for social justice, the environment, humanitarian work, and spiritual leaders and community members.

Parvati along with Johanna Leseho, Phyllis Danu, and Amina Kruck and along with the skilled musician Shivadam have been accepted to lead Tara at the 2018 Parliament.

We were thrilled to learn that His Holiness The 17th Karmapa will be one of the keynote speakers and this news only reinforces our enthusiasm about participating and offering the Tara dance there.

Please join us.

We have no doubt that participating in this global symposium will be a profoundly inspiring and nourishing experience.

To learn more about the event and register you can visit the Parliament of World Religions’s website: .

If you are going to attend and would like to dance Tara with us please let Parvati know so we can include you in our planning sessions.

Tara is Wisdom, Compassion, and Empowerment and so are you! Join us as we sing, dance, and pray.

Although we cannot all go on a 10 day retreat to Hawaii we can bring the essence of the retreat to us.  WE can bring the Creator of the dance to us.  Below is an small sample of the retreat I attended in 2010.  It changed my life and started the journey of our monthly Tara Meditations.  Take a moment to view this short youtube so you can feel into the power of gathering on retreat.  We are bringing Prema to us in June and I am so excited to offer all of you the opportunity to immerse yourself in this beautiful expression of compassion for a full week-end 🙂

Dear Prema,
As many of you are aware, we are planning to host Prema, the creator of the movement meditation called the Tara Dance, for a week-end retreat.
Prema will be confirming her itinerary for 2014 and making her flight reservations within the next week – therefore, we need to finalize our confirmations and commitment to aid the process. 
By holding the retreat in the Tara Temple we are limited to 14 participants.  (Prema and Myri, Larry and myself will make 18 people which is a comfortable number since we have been working comfortably with that many in the Tara Temple this year)
I have the following down as attending:  Andy, Bart, Colette, Deb, Joy, Louise, Molly, Norrie, Peggy, Wendy. 
However, only Peggy and Molly have paid and are registered. 
Therefore I would need to have your commitment by registering or letting me know by RSVP so I can confidently confirm our commitment to Prema and allow her to make the arrangements necessary to her schedule to include our circle in her 2014 with the bookings of flights etc.
