Green Tara Retreat
Green Tara Buddha Iowa 

Join in making powerful prayers to Green Tara.
We'll do six simple and beautiful prayer sessions to Mother Arya Tara, our Protector and Liberator. She has promised to always care for us. Through engaging in this special practice, we will receive her special blessings and protection for ourselves and others.

During breaks between sessions, there will be time to enjoy some tasty snacks and good conversation. This is a unique and powerful opportunity to improve our ability to care for others--the heart of spiritual practice and the source of our own happiness.
1-2 pm
No experience necessary! You may attend any or all of the six chanted meditation sessions.  Each will last approximately one hour.
By making requests to Mother Tara and praying for the happiness of all living beings we will create a great store of positive energy. 
Everyone is welcome.

Tara is a female Buddha, a manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all the Buddhas. Each of the Twenty-one Taras is a manifestation of the principal Tara, Green Tara. Tara is also known as the ‘Mother of the Conquerors’.

Tara is our common mother, our Holy Mother. When we are young we turn to our worldly mother for help. She protects us from immediate dangers, provides us with all our temporal needs, and guides and encourages us in our learning and personal development.

In the same way, during our spiritual growth we need to turn to our Holy Mother, Tara, for refuge. She protects us from all internal and external dangers, she provides us with all the necessary conditions for our spiritual training, and she guides us and inspires us with her blessings as we progress along the spiritual path.
