Join Dharma teacher Catherine Pawasarat for a weekend exploration of “Planetary Awakening”. Catherine will give Discourses on Deep Sustainability, covering such questions as:
-What needs to shift for humans to live in balance and harmony with the planet?
-How can we support this process in our day to day lives?
-How does the concept of sustainability translate to our mind states?
Green Tara Initiation
Catherine will also give a Green Tara Initiation (Wongkur) in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Green Tara is the female Bodhisattva or archetype of enlightened activity, and related to mother nature, plants, animals and the eco-system in which we live. The initiation is a celebration in itself, and also provides an energetic transmission upon which one can develop mantra and visualisation practice.
