The Mandala Dance of the 21 Praises of Tara is a movement meditation. It is a non-sectarian practice based on a traditional Tibetan text in which Tara’s 21 aspects are praised for the purpose of sending the blessings and healing of each of the qualities to all beings, as well as embodying these qualities as the dancer. In this workshop, the dancers are led into a mandala of dance and instructed in the subtlety of sacred movement and mudra. We learn the philosophy, meditations, and visualizations experientially as we sing and dance together. At the end, the dancers are adorned with the silk and jewel costumes (provided) and dance for the community in a an offering ritual.
No dance experience is necessary.
3 day workshop $145 EarlyBird by April 16 – $165.
