Wonderful magical, healing and utterly life changing week. Each week has a different theme. Learning and developing the ancient shamanic practice of overtone chanting, vocal purification practices, transformative breathing, vocal yogas, sonorous meditations, sacred chants, mantras and sonic practices to transform family curses into their corresponding blessings and heal the ancestral lines. Also, journeying through the MANDALA OF GREEN TARA, we experience the union of the sacred masculine and feminine, bliss and emptiness. Beautiful continuous chant and practice. Working to discover love and ourselves and to magically transform afflictive or difficult relationships or difficult aspects of otherwise loving relationships. We will do this ceremonially, working with one of the most powerful of all deities, the Great Goddess Tara, the quick acting Mother of all the Buddhas, powerful and able to bring enlightenment in this lifetime. Traditionally equally loved and revered by men and women, many, including almost all Tibetan Buddhists, from the most sophisticated to the simplest, including the Dalai Lama, maintain their deep connection with this feminine manifestation of the divine, who acts swiftly and confers compassion, enlightened action, liberation, emotional and physical healing and long life. Through working with the extraordinary energies of Tara we are able to ease the blockages to achievements in work, in life and in emotional and physical health , bring about order and flow in our lives, to liberate us from afflictive emotions making us depressed, unhappy and frustrated, leading us to ecstasy, joy and freedom and work towards achieving the essential state of reality and become enlightened.
The April-May 2010 retreat is held over the festival of Beltane or May Day, a festival of fecundity when the forces of heaven penetrate the earth (represented in traditional England by the Maypole). We will celebrate and harness these forces using sound as the bridge between the worlds to connect to the source of power through the instrument of our own voice and purify the body, the elements and past karma. In Tibetan Buddhism, the ultimate liberation is to transform the elements of the body into the essence of their substance - the rainbow colours and ultimately achieve the rainbow body
Jill only does one week-long residential retreat of this kind a year - always different and people come to them from all over the world so do book soon.
