Embodying the Archetypal Buddhist Feminine: A Refuge for Inspiration and Equanimity

Grace Fisher

Grace Fisher

Join us on Mother’s Day to celebrate different archetypal Buddhist feminine forms. We’ll explore emanations of Prajna Paramita, Green Tara, Quan Yin, and other expressions of the sacred feminine. By aligning ourselves with the attributes of the sacred archetypes, we'll move closer to understanding how these qualities can live within us and what might block our access. We'll then take the next vital step to integrating these facets as both an embodied felt sense and a source of inspiration and equanimity. This is a day not only for mothers, but for all those who self identify as women and who want to sit in the sacred space of embodying our heart’s deepest expression of the feminine. This shortened daylong will include time for meditation, movement, discussion, and self reflection. May each participant come away with a deeper, viscerally known connection and a sense of trust in the inherent wisdom of our divine femininity.

How do we learn to be with, even embrace, grief without either bypassing it or being overwhelmed by it? Participants are invited to co-create a safer container in which to practice meditation, engage in small and large group sharing, attend Dharma talks, and give our grief a space to exist and be expressed.

From a Crisis Meditation Practice to a Sacred One

Oftentimes we find ourselves running to our altars when we need saving or when we are at a loss. In this weekend time together, we will explore ways to move from a crisis-oriented meditation practice to one that is a sacred way of life. How can we attune our habitual meditation activity to ancestral wisdom? Discover how to transform your sitting practice into one that consistently honors the ancestors, the land, and all sentient beings.
