With Founder and Senior Lama of Sukhasiddhi Foundation
Lama Palden Drolma
A 7-module On-demand VideoTraining

Embody the wisdom and love at the core of who you are — your sustaining, yet transforming fountain of awakened presence — through a profound connection with Tara.

Receive Tara’s many blessings to help you release unbeneficial narratives, woundings, and shame, and open to her authentic reflection of you as YOUR pure nature.

What would it be like to allow yourself to deeply and fully connect with the compassionate, wrathful, tenderly receptive, unapologetically truthful, sensual, free-spirited, wise woman within you — the all-encompassing awakened feminine?

This sacred self of the ancients — that’s also quite human — is within all women...

And she’s waiting... for you to remember her, for you to see her as the truth of who you are, to step into your pure essential nature — that is her.

Tara, who Tibetans see as the most beloved enlightened being, the female buddha, the Savioress, can mirror this full-spectrum feminine within you.

She’s the mother you never had — primordial and enlightened, inseparable with the vast cosmos — yet she comes into embodiment so that we can connect with her and receive her blessings.

These blessings are not all light and love, however...

Her path also takes us through the muckiness of our inner obstacles — our stuck behaviors, self-defeating thoughts, and emotional woundings — helping us to transform them into fertile ground for our own unique blossoming.

Ultimately, she leads us to the freedom and liberation we seek... that have been there for us all along.

This powerful new program with Lama Palden Drolma, one of the first Western women authorized as a lama, invites you — over the course of seven modules — to experience the embodiment of the awakened feminine within you as reflected by Tara.

Through a culminating meditative series on Tara — reaching an experiential integration in the final session — you’ll receive her many blessings and heartfully open to her reflection of you, your pure nature.

You’ll meditate with focused intent on this beloved deity, allowing her to reach out to you with her infinite compassion, love, and healing energies.

And as you open to her, you’ll open to her healing transmission of awakened body, right speech, and clarity of mind.

Over the 7 modules of this viscerally experiential, transformative inner journey, you’ll:

  • Discover Tara’s origin and her embodiment of the awakened full-spectrum feminine
  • Realize how each part of you is essentially sacred, and how Tara mirrors this for you
  • Become familiar with both formless and form meditations
  • Explore how to maintain wakefulness and clarity of mind while letting go and relaxing into the boundless compassion and love inherent in non-dual awareness
  • Find sanctuary within by opening to the buddhas’ and dakinis’ awakened presence of wisdom and love
  • Discover the profound meaning of Tara’s seed syllable and mantra, and how to meditate on these to instantly connect with her
  • Receive the nourishing, soothing, healing grace of Tara’s divine blessing
  • Discover how to let go of your negative thoughts about yourself, and open to the innate goodness of who you truly are
  • With Tara as your model, find out how to work with your ego self or human self with an awakened mind
  • Be given an inquiry practice that can unlock your blocks to spiritual development and awakening
  • And much more...

Tara helps you connect with the wisdom and love at the core of who you are — the sustaining, transforming fountain of awakened presence in your own heart.

Over the course of this profound new training, you’ll learn and develop a spiritual practice, which you can return to again and again throughout your lifetime, that can help you let go of what stands between you and the awakened feminine within you.

You’ll find out how to extend loving kindness to yourself and others in very real and authentic ways, and connect with yourself and the world, healed, renewed, and with a fresh and enlivened perspective.

Lama Palden was authorized as a lama in 1986 by her root teacher, Kalu Rinpoche, following her completion of the traditional Tibetan 3-year, 3-month retreat.

She's been a student and practitioner of Buddhism and of comparative mysticism for over 40 years. She’s known for her gift in helping her students actualize their innate wisdom and joy, and is committed to supporting the balance between her students’ inner and outer lives, and to their individuation process.

In this new online course with her, Lama Palden will guide you in opening to Tara’s potent energies to awaken her peacefulness, wisdom, fierce clarity, compassion, and healing powers already within you... empowering and liberating you to step beyond duality and settle into the fullness of yourself and your life.

You’ll connect with yourself and Tara in loving, open awareness, and learn to do this on your own so that Tara is always accessible to you.

All the great Tibetan masters call upon and meditate extensively on Tara. Over many centuries, this meditation has proven to be as valuable for men as it is for women, who all report that their lives completely changed through their Tara practice.

You’ll also learn about how Tara’s essence is manifest as her seed syllable, which serves as her “cosmic texting address,” and as her mantra, which can be likened to an instant email address. And you’ll explore how to navigate working with a buddha — an awakened being.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Discover the profound meaning of Tara’s seed syllable and mantra, and how to meditate on these to instantly connect with her
  • Receive the nourishing, soothing, healing grace of Tara’s divine blessing

This serves to help you transform your limited idea of who you are, and to unlock your innate awakened presence. You’ll discover how Tara meditation opens you to your pure being and the blossoming of your own unique qualities.

You’ll also discover how this type of transformative meditation can help you shift your identity from ego-centered to one of awakened awareness and compassion, and to the union of awareness and emptiness.

  • Discover how to help the immature, scared, young parts of yourself grow and mature
  • Explore how a connection with Tara can improve your relationships and deepen your engagement with the world

Module 5: Stepping Fully Into the Awakened Presence
Step 5 of the Tara Meditation (December 18) (Pre-recorded)

In this session, you’ll be invited to step fully into becoming one with the enlightened being of Tara, which can greatly accelerate your awakening. You’ll open to her power through your heart chakra, working with her seed syllable and her mantra to offer gratitude to the awakened beings of all times and all places, and to radiate cleansing, healing, and liberating blessings to all.

You’ll also work with the subtle body, consisting of channels (nadis in Sanskrit), movement (prana in Sanskrit), and essential energy (bindu in Sanskrit).

Module 6: Letting Go Into Vast Open Love
Step 6 of the Tara Meditation (January 8)

In this session, you’ll explore the meaning of your true nature, which is the genuine truth of reality — the union of awakened wisdom and love. And, you’ll discover what obscures your understanding of this.

You’ll also experience the powerful liberation of transitioning from meditation with form to meditation without form, and explore the benefits of both. And, you’ll experience letting go into openness and love, and resting in open awareness.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Notice the difference between resting in open awareness at the beginning and at the end of a meditation
  • Become comfortable with being in form and formlessness, which helps dissolve your fixations that arise from not realizing who you truly are

You’ll find out how to access — and stay in touch with — your inherent wellbeing, goodness, kindness, and wisdom. And you’ll participate in a group dedication of these teachings to benefit all.

In this last module, you’ll:

  • Appear as Tara arising out of the void — the union of clarity, luminosity, and emptiness, inseparable with all that is, yet distinctly unique
  • Discover how to share these teachings with others

The Spiritual Path
Audio Teaching With Lama Palden Drolma

In this audio teaching, Lama Palden leads an opening meditation for people who have never meditated before. The audio begins with an opening prayer, followed by some basic and detailed meditation instructions as well as an actual meditation. She completes the talk with a discussion about the various hallmarks of the spiritual path.

Personal Journey & the Ego
Audio Teaching With Lama Palden Drolma

In this talk from Lama Palden, she describes her love for spirituality and how she came to Buddhism as a student and teacher. As a teen, she noticed the lack of “meaning” in the culture and in people’s lives — having grown up in an upper-middle-class family where everything looked perfect and everyone was miserable. She noticed something didn’t quite add up for her as far as this lifestyle being the achievement of “the American Dream.” As a teen, she was exposed to many progressive ideas, which allowed her to go deeply into studying and seeing to the heart of the religions she studied. There she began her journey of looking for something to connect with, which really began to get interesting when she realized the conflict was also within herself...

How to Practice Dedicating Merit
PDF Article by Lama Palden Drolma

When we dedicate our meditation to others, says Lama Palden, we make our practice more open and beneficial. This article discusses how dedicating this value — this wholesomeness — to all sentient beings expands our meditation beyond ourselves. Many forms of Buddhist practice conclude with dedicating the benefit of our practice to relieving the suffering of sentient beings and helping them awaken. The English word “merit” is defined as being or doing something that is worthy and creates value. It’s said that when we meditate or engage in another form of spiritual practice, such as yoga, chanting, praying, or singing songs of realization, we are accumulating merit.
