Working with Obstacles

This one-day retreat introduces the short daily practice of White Tara, one of the most famous bodhisattvas of compassion in Tibetan Buddhism. The practice of Tara is for all of us — whatever stage of life. We will explore various ways of meditating with Tara in order to go beyond the many faces of fear that confront us in daily life.
