In the Mandala of the 21 Tara’s there is an additional Tara, she is Green Tara the Center of the Mandala ( 2 make 22) and the leader of all the Taras in the Circle. The Mandala represents a circle of experience and is a roadmap for feminine empowerment and the spiritual journey. Green Tara is the leader and leads the way! So it’s makes sense that she is the first Goddess Circle @treetopyoga . The roots of her practice go back to a time in Northern India and Tibet when sacred trees of the Kādira Forest were thought to be powerful feminine energetic influences of the region. I think it is incredibly appropriate that the 1x a month Goddess Circle is at a place called Treetop Yoga and that our course starts with Green Tara. We will study her history, teachings, seed syllables, invocations, meanings of iconography and mantra ( bring your mala beads and prayer shawls) ( there will be detailed translation of the meaning of the Sanskrit Mantras & Teachings) and we will do the Green Tara practice. We will have sharing and connection. Her practice is known to have what is called “ all accomplishing” energy. With Green Tara all is accomplished, she sets the tone. She Leads the way for all the other Taras in the Mandala or circle. https://linktr.ee/melissaabbott
In our 1x a month, Goddess Circles we will be investigating, learning, and practicing the path of the Tara Mandala. This is sacred and deep work of feminine empowerment. I invite you to join the circle, the mandala, the sisterhood and not only learn about this revered Tibetan Goddess and all her emanations but to upgrade, hold space and be open to the wisdom of the circle, connection, feminine empowerment, support, and having the right circle of women in your sphere is a great life upgrade.

I have been working on this project for over 2 years and even wrote a book to support it. If your inner guidance is interested come to the circle. #transformation
The Whys? Restorative Yoga Who doesn’t love a power vinyasa yoga class? I do myself, so many benefits! Having said that, we all know this world is a very stress inducing place. You may not be sleeping well, have injuries, processing emotion milestones, feeling anxiety, transitioning into a new situation….
ENTER RESTORATIVE YOGA
For those unacquainted with this practice, Restorative Yoga involves utilizing bolsters, blankets, pillows, straps, and blocks to provide support for our bodies as we assume various poses. By remaining in these positions for extended durations, we can redirect our focus towards our breath and activate our parasympathetic nervous system. Consider it a gateway to meditation, offering a gentle and accessible path towards tranquility.
In contrast to a dynamic Vinyasa class, Restorative Yoga does not present physical challenges that divert our attention from our thoughts. Embracing the rest and digest mode, which hinges upon the vagus nerve and parasympathetic nervous system, or more simply put, our capacity to unwind, holds the key. Restorative Yoga = Longevity, Stress Relief, Self Care, Deep Relaxation, Better Sleep, Injury Recovery, Emotional Healing and Integration, Improved Immune Function, Mindfulness, Increased Flexibility, Nervous System Restoration, Balance, and Rejuvenation

Today I am guided to share with you this recording of my overview and commentary of the 3rd Tara – Golden Tara. ( link to Spotify below or link in bio) . In it I discuss and comment on her teachings, mantras, seed syllables, iconography, history, tummo heat, sudden awakened energy and a bit about my own sadhana and how Golden Tara relates to my own sadhana. It’s one of my favorite podcasts and encapsulates everything I want to transmit in my book Tara Illuminated The Mandala of the 21 Taras. If you meditate, are on the spiritual path or sadhana and if you are a woman ( or man) and interested in spiritual practices, I urge you to relax, make time, take a listen.
