Lama Tsultrim Allione is an international teacher and the founder of Tara Mandala Retreat Centre.
She was ordained as one of the first Western Buddhist nuns by the previous Karmapa. After four years as a nun in the Himalayas she returned her vows, married and raised children. She has studied with some of the greatest Tibetan Buddhist masters including Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche and Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. Her books include “Women of Wisdom” and “Feeding Your Demons”, based on the Chöd (Cutting Through the Ego) teachings of the great Tibetan yogini Machig Lapdron.
She teaches how to embody the enlightened, fierce power of the sacred feminine, the tantric dakinis. With knowledge of the mandala of the five dakinis (female Buddhist deities who embody wisdom), we may understand how to embrace the different energies of our own nature. She shares from a deep trove of personal experiences, loss and sacred knowledge to explore an ancient yet accessible path to the ability to shift your emotional challenges into empowerment.
Her unique perspective on female strength and enlightenment will guide us as we restore our inner spirit, leading us toward the change we aspire to create in the world.
