24 hours practice of the 4 mandalas of Tara Chittamani

This intensive retreat of the Tara practice will include the recitation of the 21 Taras, prostrations and mandala offerings for 24 hours (with sessions of 2 hours). It is dedicated to the overcoming of all obstacles and fears, to the pacification of astrological and environmental imbalances, as well as to restore balance of the five elements and to the fulfillment of our wishes. The practice of Tara Chittamani is a special Tibetan Buddhist method to help dissipate interferences and to liberate all living beings from all forms of fear and danger. The practice allows us to identify with the pure crystal energy of the female deity Tara, also known as the Liberator and Swift Heroine for the speed that characterizes her action. The special energy of Tara, consort of the Supreme Healer of fear, Buddha Amogasiddhi, is the key to overcoming all outer, inner and secret fears.

please call the front office in order to book your presence in one or more sessions of the retreat: it is important to have a minimum number of people for each session.

The power of gratitude

When our hearts are full of gratitude any door that closes leads to the opening of an even greater blessing. We live, naturally, with our minds focused on what we don’t posses, on what we’re not, and we constantly lose the opportunity to be grateful for what we do have, and what we indeed are. Marcia Lot invites us to uncover our own internal selves and to develop our sense of gratitude

Tibetan calligraphy workshop

In Tibet calligraphy is a sacred art. The letters are one of the veichles through we can learn and hear the Dharma. Everybody recognize, looking at it, that a statue representing the Buddha is actually representing Him; but few know that, at a deeper level, this statue represent the Enlighted Mind, why this object is a material manifestation of the Buddha himself, and due to this fact one have to follow precise rules and proportion in producing such an image, as well in thangka painting. Those rules and precise proportions are transmitted by a Lineage that endures from centuries.

The same is valid as well for the calligraphy.

There are many styles in Tibetan writing.

The one we will learn is u-chen, that means “with head”.
