Welcome to Tara Mandala Bay Area Sangha

Tara Mandala Retreat Center, Pagosa Springs, CO
 
We are a satellite sangha of Tara Mandala Retreat Center in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, established by Lama Tsultrim Allione. We offer weekly sangha meetings where we focus on the practices such as Shamatha, Vipassana, Prajña Paramita, Chöd, Feeding Your Demons, Green Tara, and others. Many of our practices are based on the Tibetan Buddhist lineage of Machig Labdrön, the 11th century Tibetan yogini who established the lineage of Chöd.

In addition to offering annual teachings with Lama Tsultrim Allione, we also offer regular courses with authorized teachers Ellen Booth Church, Lopön Chandra Easton, Robin Gayle, Polly Ryan, Karla Jackson Brewer, Jeff Tipp, Roberta Godbe-Tipp, and others. These courses explore traditional texts and practices as well as their application in the Western world.
