Wisdom Rising 

Book Study has Moved to San Francisco Continues thru May and June

We are beginning a new Wisdom Rising book study and practice group on April 28th in San Francisco, open to new and continuing members. Continuing members will have the opportunity to deepen their relationship with the material, while new members will receive a thorough grounding in the teachings and practice.
People are rising up against injustice of all kinds, and Buddhist teacher and spiritual activist, Lama Tsultrim Allione, offers a path for all to accessing our fierce yet compassionate feminine power. Wisdom Rising explores the principle of fierce compassion, the awakened feminine, and the use of this principle for positive change through accessing the five wisdom dakinis, female deities in Tibetan Buddhism. Each dakini is associated with a difficult emotion such as depression, anger, arrogance, craving, or envy as well as its corresponding wisdom energy such as equanimity and discernment. The dakinis and these energies are the elements of a mandala, a map of our inner world. In Wisdom Rising, Allione teaches the Mandala of the Five Dakinis, a practice that integrates sound, visualization and meditation to help us transform challenging emotions into their wisdom counterparts. 
Although the practices featured in Wisdom Rising are based in Tibetan Buddhism, they are accessible to readers of all faiths and gender identities.

In order to hold the integrity of the container of practice, we are requesting that all participants have a copy of the book and commit to attending all six sessions. Copies of the book will be available for sale at the first session.Purchases can be made with check, cash or credit card.
