Tara Mandala Retreat 2009, Prologue

Prologue

I first met Lama Tsultrim Allione last September at a retreat on “Awakening through the Sacred Feminine” at Spirit Rock.  I felt an instant connection with her.  On the last day of that retreat, I told her that I’d like to study with her again.  She invited me to attend Kapala Training Level I, which was scheduled to coincide with my husband’s annual motorcycle trip with “the boys.”  I felt my karma unfolding, and wrote as much in my journal on that day.

And so, nine months later, I was flying to Colorado to attend Kapala I.

As I’ve done with previous retreats, I’m going to repost my paper journal here.  I will, however, omit the specific, detailed instructions on the meditative practices, out of respect for the teachings. I am not qualified to “transmit” the Tibetan practices I learned, and partial information can be a dangerous thing.

May all beings benefit!
