Join Nita Rubio for this special Three Day workshop, meditation and depth practice.

Dakinis are the mirror of our minds. They dance in the spaciousness of the sky which is our liberated mind. In these practices we will be working with the Dakini Mandala of Emotions. We encounter these Dakinis through the elements and begin to work with our obstructed emotion with the practice and alchemy. When emotions are liberated we begin to touch the pristine awareness in ourselves and move as the Dakinis do… in freedom and relieved of suffering. We will work through the mandala to understand what emotions are and to transcend reactive patterns of emotion and behavior.

The elements are:

Earth: transforming pride & stubbornness into the wisdom of equanimity

Water: transforming irritation and threat into the wisdom of clarity

Air: transforming anxiety and criticism into effective action

Fire: transforming attachment & addiction to passion/compassion

Space: transforming numbness and ignorance into joy

This work is a very deep and foundational ground for anyone in consciousness work and especially those committing to traditional Tantric sadhanas. This immersion is open to everyone, but highly recommended to have some background in meditation and a sincere interest in a strong committed practice to awakening. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience these ancient and precious practices.

You will leave the weekend with a deep and traditional Tantric sadhana fully empowered for a daily practice should you choose.
