Tara Mandala is a vibrant international Buddhist community with over 40 groups around the world and is centered at the 700-acre Retreat Center outside of Pagosa Springs, Colorado. It was established in 1993 by Lama Tsultrim Allione and her late husband, David Petit, to foster the development of innate wisdom for the benefit of all beings.
“Tara Mandala was created to bring people together to support each other, practice, and do retreat in order to reach realization. The second purpose of Tara Mandala is to be a temenos for the emergence of the sacred feminine, through the lens of Vajrayana, leading to the balance of genuine partnership between the masculine and feminine in our world.”
– Lama Tsultrim Allione
Tara Mandala offers a complete path of meditation practice and study from beginning instructions in meditation, mindfulness, and compassion to deep retreat in the tradition of Vajrayana Buddhism. Tara Mandala is unique in that Lama Tsultrim’s teachings weave the ancient wisdom of Buddhism with transformative aspects of Western psychology. Accessible practices such as Feeding Your Demons® and Mandala Training are appropriate for beginners and advanced students alike who are looking to develop their hearts, minds, and emotional awareness to lead more fulfilling lives and be of greater benefit in the world. Tara Mandala offers long-term programs, onsite and virtual retreats, online courses, and local events throughout the United States and around the globe and is committed to fostering a welcoming atmosphere for all people to explore the teachings of the Buddha and to cultivating a community that values diversity.
