What beautiful, liberating qualities of heart and mind can be cultivated in every moment?
This day of practice will introduce and explore the qualities of the popular Himalayan deity, Tara. Tara can be seen as both a symbolic representation of the Original Ground of Awakened Awareness, and as the affectionately named Mother of All Buddhas.
Sangha Live’s founding teacher, Martin Aylward, will help us to explore the symbolism of Tara, and invite us to recognise, invoke and cultivate the qualities she represents: clarity and wisdom, playfulness and spontaneity, confidence and skilfulness, tenderness and compassion. Martin will also decode what can sometimes seem like an overly complex or esoteric relationship to deity symbolism.
Our session will include sitting meditation practice and chanting of the Tara Mantra.
