Join the Transformative Dance
Celebrating the Divine Mother Tara
“Weekend Workshop”
June 10th – June 12th 2016
at Newbold House, Findhorn SCOTLAND.

 

with Prema Dasara of Hawaii and
Myri Tara Naves of Brazil.

This weekend workshop is an opportunity to engage with our inner potency. We penetrate the darkness, generate light and love, heal into wholeness and increase wisdom, energy, and blessings.

Dancing our prayers helps us to integrate all the aspects of our life’s experience into a spiritual journey of awakening. Dancing in the atmosphere of the enlightened feminine we use simple techniques that have powerful gifts. Each session of this weekend workshop introduces us to a joyful method of cultivating the tools we need to make the most of this human adventure.

This is an introductory workshop and no dance skills or previous knowledge of Sacred Dance is necessary to gain the healing benefits of this unique practice.

Developed by Prema Dasara, this work is based on Tibetan Buddhist Mind Training practices coupled with sacred dance movement from around the world.

The workshop begins Friday night after dinner, 7.30 – 9.30 PM.
Saturday 9.30 AM until 9.30 PM. Sunday 10.00 AM until 4.00 PM

Realm of the Enlightened Feminine

Friday night 7.30 – 9.30 PM – Intro to Dancing the Divine Feminine

Waking up the body mind, we orient our human journey towards realization and the light within. We explore the qualities of our awakened feminine nature, exploring the power of mantra and mudra combined with mindful movement and meditation.

Saturday morning – Dancing White Tara – Protection and Healing

We enter the protective realm of White Tara, who is known for her blessing of long life and good health. We examine our inner commitment to awakening, letting go of whatever holds us back, our guilt and our fears, our confusion and doubt, we dance into the rainbow light.

Saturday afternoon – Medicine Buddha

A deep experience of inner peace, the dance of Medicine Buddha helps us to cleanse our body mind of self obsession and enter into the brilliance of compassionate action.

Saturday evening – Tara Tames the 8 Fears

This dance drama was originally written for children, though there is nothing childish about the activity of examining our inner fears. Prema shares her experience in working with the grasping mind, keeping the atmosphere light even though the evening is focused on profound practice.

Sunday Morning – Gold Tara

Invoking the Golden Goddess of Plenty, we generate abundance, increasing our wisdom, wealth, energy, compassion and skill, celebrating the gifts of our lives.

Sunday Afternoon – Tara and the Tarot

These playful dances incorporate Brazilian Rhythms with the ancient wisdom of Tara and the Tarot. In the Tibetan tradition, the Goddess Tara has 21 emanations. Prema has discovered that they have a strong relationship to the western mystery schools embodied in the major arcana of the Tarot.

Prema is the Spiritual and Creative director of Tara Dhatu (http://www.taradhatu.net) – an organization dedicated to uplifting humanity through the sacred arts. She is deeply committed to opening the door to the magnificent view of the preciousness of our human potential. She calls all to realize the wisdom and compassion dancing within their own hearts. With her personal experience of many spiritual paths, she shares her insights with exceptional clarity and lightheartedness.

Tara Dancing at the Theosophical Convention

Realm of the Enlightened Feminine

Tara Dancing at the Theosophical Convention

Marlene Butler, one of our Tara Dhatu facilitators in Napier, New Zealand, was invited to share Tara and the dance at the 118th National Summer Convention of the New Zealand Theosophical Society on January 11th 2015. The theme was “The Way Forward for Humanity: Achieving Universal Brother/Sisterhood.” Held at the Napier Girls High School, attendance was from all over New Zealand, Australia and as far away as the Philippines.

Marlene writes…

I have been presenting Tara’s dance and Tibetan bowl guided meditations at the Theosophical Society from the end of 2013 through 2014.  Chris Hensley, the President of the Napier chapter of the New Zealand TS, asked if I would like to present a Tara Dance meditation and talk at the convention.

There were sixty five men and women who joined me for the session. It was magical. All were very present and willing to join in the dancing. We were mainly a group of middle aged folk with a very mature young woman of 90, Tania, who was incredibly joyful that she could join in and experience the beauty of the moving meditation.

We danced the “Prayer of Motivation” which we in Napier call the “Tara Haka.” Some of the men in the group especially connected with this prayer. We followed with the dance of the “Mantra of Tara” and then I introduced the “21 Qualities of Tara.”

The convention was held the week the world was saddened and shocked by the tragic shooting that took place in France. Contrary to the intent of the terrorists, the world came together in a profound and unifying way.

I set the intention that we dance Green Tara’s 21 Qualities for the coming together and unifying of all people, linking our hearts with the heart of every man, woman and child.. The beauty and power of the dance touched us all and it was requested that another session be organized for the following day.

During the dance Tania stood next to me and held my hand.  She reported being just a little dizzy but when I suggested she could sit down she said, “I’m loving this dance and I will manage fine!”

The next day Tania was there waiting to once again participate. This session was just as enriching and well received. There was another woman who had some sort of injury and was hobbling with a walking stick, and she participated both days. Don’t you just love it when this happens?

Murray, from Auckland, one of the leaders of the TS, has offered to help with any logistics for Prema’s Auckland visit in July.  The TS has a quarter yearly magazine TheoSophia  and they are publishing my article, “Alchemy through Trust and theTara Dance” in their March edition. It was truly a refreshing and inspiring experience.

Om Tare!!!
