We celebrate the Buddhist Great Mother deity Tara through dance, meditation and prayer.  “The practice of Green Tara helps to overcome fear and anxiety, but devotees also believe that she can grant wishes, eliminate suffering of all kinds and bring happiness. In times of great difficulty, millions of people call upon ‘Great Noble Tara.’  “White Tara is referred to as ‘Mother of all the Buddhas.’  This is because she embodies the motivation that is compassion.”  Join us in these beautiful practices. No prior knowledge or experience necessary. For more information contact Aimée at aimeeblj@gmail.com
