Closing Down of Clear Vision

From Clear Vision Trust on Sun, 2 Aug, 2020 - 11:43

Online Retreat: Tara - Fearless Love Lighting Up the World

From Taraloka Retreat Centre on Thu, 30 Jul, 2020 - 10:15

How can we hold sorrow and joy - in ourselves, others and the world?  We may hold one aspect more in the light, the other more in shadow, however we need to embrace both to be fully alive.  With Tara as our guide - seated in meditation, stepping out into the world, fearless, wise and full of compassion - we can develop our own budding faculties of love, delight, compassion, ease and equanimity.  These can then become much needed offerings...
