Hi All, Enlightened Feminine Empowerment Blue Vraja Dakini Meditation Practice Session Wed Jan 26 1:30pm Eastern(room will open at 1:15pm, please be on time)We will be practicing each of the 5 Dakinis meditations in separate zoom sessions and in the final practice (6th) practice session we will put them all together at once in the 5 Dakini Mandala. We are having these zoom sessions Wednesdays at 1:30 Eastern Jan 25, feb 2, 9, 16, 23, March 2
These practices, of the Five Dakini’s, are from the “ Wisdom Rising” book by Lama Tsultrim Allione. These practices come down to us from a Tibetan Tantric Buddhism female practitioner named Machig Lapdron and are over 1000 years old. To buy book:
The Five Dakini’s practices work with transforming encumbered energies ( Samskaras) such as procrastination, neediness, envy, jealousy, anger, fear etc into “The Wisdom Energies of the Dakinis evolved/transformed/manifersted to an unencumbered view”. The mandala/circle, elemental energies, directional energies, visualization, seed syllables, Uccara, etc are used in the Dakini practices. Ultimately, the absolute level is beyond gender, how on a relative level men and women get to the ultimate level may be very different paths. Women have long thought they have to act like men to attain anything in this world. The cultural messages truly effect and disempower women on so many levels. This is why the Dakini is so relevant.The Dakini is a messenger of spasciousness, a force of truth, a transitional primal power, a fierce compassion for change and upliftment. I believe the recognition of feminine empowerment holds a key to cultural evolution and that awareness of practices line the Five Dakini’s .I highly recommend you get the book and read it, until you get the book, tho, it is all right to come and practice and get a taste of it and see if it is for you. It is exciting work and I look forward to practicing with you.
Kind Regards, Melissa Abbott
