If you have listened to my https://open.spotify.com/show/11lKBLSofn5ZcwBhPvu5ZK?si=2oDtbp_ZRlePZOWckbCcqw meditation podcast , you know that I practice some Tara meditations to heal ourselves, invoke blessings, repair our world and connect to Devine Feminine, an energetic force all around us. This force has the power to purify our internal and external issues, self sabotaging constructs, increase well being and open us up to the abundance of the universe Tara is the Female Buddha of Vrajayana Buddhism who is the embodiment of wisdom and compassion. These cards explore her the mandala of her 22 manifestations, her mantras, seed syllables, meditation, visualization practices, and teachings . There is a Tara for every situation. I am excited about this practice deck as it will be a means to imbibing and practicing Taras blessings.
I have been working on these cards and a book to go with it for over a year+ by practicing and exploring these practices and meditations myself. I plan to have an in person workshop with streaming/zoom option in Sept 2023 using these cards and performing Taras Practices. The book is not quite done, working on it this summer and looking to publish ASAP.

In this podcast, I am continuing my exploration of each of the Tibetan Vrajayana Buddhist practice of the Twenty-One Taras.
Each of the Taras in the Mandala, provide ways to uplift ourselves and empower our journey in life. The practices are layers of teachings. The mantras are vibrational tools for transformation. There is great liberating and healing power to meditate on all the aspects of this beloved female Buddha. This particular Tara, the Tara Who Destroys All Negativities, is the 7th emanation of the 21 Taras. She provides you with the understanding of the malicious motives of both your inner complexes and those of others. This has the ability to allow you to guard yourself from taking in or creating negative energy. She helps you to overcome obstructed circumstances in your life and potential threats. These threats ( both inner and outer) are considered a type of demon in this tradition and are known as Maras. If you are honest with yourself, about your inner demons or Maras, the practice of this Tara sets up a beautiful vibrational dynamic to smash or cut through them.
When you perform this sequence for yourself and others, you set up a powerful and vibrational reorientation of your being which is not only extremely protective from outside influences but also safeguards you from your own mental patterning.
In this podcast, I discuss, teach and practice the sequence aiming to give you insight into the layers of this practice and how something so ancient as this can be just as vital in modern life.

Dark Red Victorious Tara Practice – 6th Emanation of 21 Taras
This Sadhana Practice, is so Healing and Protective. It helps you access your deepest inner stories and samskaras.
In this Feminine Empowered Practice of Dark Red Victorious Tara we delve into The Vrajayana Tibetan Practice of calling upon the various emanations of the Compassionate and Uplifting 21 Tara Practices. This week we are investigating the Sixth Tara, Dark Red Victorious Tara.
Dark Red Victorious Tara comes to your aid when you are experiencing emotions in your body such as unease, fatigue, irritation, or apprehension. She helps as you start to decipher those obscure feelings as emotions—anger, sadness, trepidation. Your understanding allows you to monitor this procedure before you inadvertently transmute those interpretations into assumptions, decisions, or activities. So in other words, she keeps you from believing the old stories and patterns which run your life like a broken record. Reciting her Praise and Teachings, Making Offerings and Chanting her mantra is a special and transformative experience.

In this Feminine Empowered Yoga Nidra we invite the 16 Jnana Siddha Yoginis into our sphere of meditation. These Yoginis are from the Shaiva Tantra Tradition of Northern India where they were a popular practice over a 1000 years ago in the Swat Valley, high in their Himalayan Mountains of Kashmir. The Yoginis are messengers of a transitional primal power, the goddess, fierce compassion for change and upliftment and actually beyond the grasp of the conceptual mind. They are related to the elements and all the guises of our being.
The Jnana Siddha Yoginis Practice help us recognize our own energies to push us through our blockages, samsara’s, patterns, or issues. They are a source of our ability to love ourselves more deeply and feel the preciousness of our lives.
