White Tara

with Acharya Judith Simmer-Brown

September 2 - 4


This three-day retreat introduces the short daily practice of White Tara, one of the most famous bodhisattvas of compassion in Tibetan Buddhism. Emanated from the tears of the compassionate Avalokiteshvara, peaceful White Tara is said to witness the suffering of beings through her seven eyes, and she soothes their fear, calms their anguish, heals their suffering—both individual and communal—and extends their lives. This is a lineage practice particularly relied upon in times of domestic and community turmoil and disharmony, and when personal or family health is threatened.

White Tara practices have long been popular in Kagyu and Nyingma communities; this particular short practice was composed years ago by Sakyong Mipham to soothe illness, disharmony, and suffering in the Shambhala community.

The lung (reading transmission) will be provided, and the retreat will be comprised of practice sessions and talks on compassion practice and the tradition of White Tara.
