About the White Tara Practice Group

Glorious White Tara is the healer of all ills and giver of long life. This beautiful practice will be the foundation for our online practice group.

White Tara is a favorite of our teachers so we will be dedicating the power of this practice to the long lives of our gurus. We can also use the practice to heal others and energise our already existing healing practices, whatever they are.

Paula has kindly offered to guide a monthly White Tara practice group since the participants of the White Tara retreats  in 2019 and 2020 had the wish to continue to practice together.

If you are new to his group and haven’t joined before you are welcome to book in for this month or next months group (the group meets every third Wednesday of the month) if you have received a the White Tara Empowerment or any Kriya – and/or Highest Yoga Tantra Initiation from a qualified Tibetan Lama. In case of doubts contact: spc@landofjoy.co.uk

Once you have booked in, you will receive the Zoom link to join the group online and a link to access the resources you will need in order to follow the practice.

It is a wonderful opportunity to deepen your practice and students who will come for the first time have the chance to develop a stable understanding of the White Tara practice over time.

About the Teacher

Paula began her studies of Buddhism when she was 14 at Berkeley High School in California where she realized liberating delusion was key to healing our planet and its inhabitants. The focus on systems theory and ecology at university prepared her to apply the whole body/mind/culture/ environment to this ancient contemplative discipline of human transformation.

As a dancer, healer, singer, student of psychology and ecology, she brings all these elements into the understanding of the whole person and how tantra works in this greater context – while preserving the classical format of Lama Tsong Khapa’s ear-whispered lineage.

Inspired by the example of the meditators in Dharamsala and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, she devoted the last 34 years to following the guidance those she calls her awesome, amazing teachers, primarily Lama Thubten Yeshe, Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche and Kyabje Ribur Rinpoche. — which included 24 years preparing for and completing long retreats — 2 of which were 4 year solitary great maha-anuttara yoga retreats.

She studies with teachers from all 4 schools of Tibetan Buddhism. Her goal in life has been steady since childhood: to realize Mahamudra and do all she can to bring peace and environmental justice to our world.
