Meditation and Wisdom Rising Book Study
Please join us every other Sunday for an open meditation and book study of Lama Tsutrim Allione's new book Wisdom Rising: A Journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine. Meditations are guided and open to anyone, no experience necessary. We will rotate between mindfulness, Prajna Paramita and the dakini mandala. The Book Study will focus on one chapter per meeting, but everyone is welcome to any session, regardless of whether you have read the book already - the discussions will have something for everyone. These sessions are hosted by the Tara Mandala Greater Los Angeles Sangha. Tara Mandala is a retreat center in Colorado founded by Lama Tsultrim Allione, author of Wisdom Rising, Feeding Your Demons, and Women of Wisdom. Offered on a donation basis, suggested amount $5. You may bring your own cushion, or use a provided chair or yoga chair. The room is often crisp in the morning, so feel free to bring your own blanket to wrap yourself in.
