Dynamic compassion

Responding to the suffering of others is not straight forward, doubt and uncertainty will limit us and a lack of wisdom can make what we do lack skill or effectiveness. To benefit others, we need both compassion and wisdom, we also need to know how to move towards suffering and how to stay with our own resources. Green Tara is the Bodhisattva of dynamic compassion and an important manifestation of the sacred feminine in the Tibetan tradition. She shows us the example of how to respond to the suffering of others from a place of authenticity that trusts in our intuitive wisdom. Learning to listen to our natural wisdom is not simple. It requires that we quieten our agendas and preconceptions and instead open to receive the presence of the other. In this she embodies the unconditional compassionate mother-ground that can hold others in their suffering. During this retreat we will explore the nature of Tara’s intuitive wisdom, and the 5 wisdoms associated with five elements.

For whom

This fourth module is open for people who have at least two years experience with meditation, previous experience with Rob’s seminars, basic knowledge of the foundations of Buddhism and a clear wish to explore and engage in the practice of tantric meditation. People with less experience may be asked to do some preparatory work before attending and can contact us to see how we can support them to make it possible. Timely subscription is therefore necessary.

Rob Preece

Rob Preece has studied Tibetan Buddhism for many decades under the guidance of great teachers and holds a degree in psychology. During this time he has written four ground-breaking books on the meaningful chemistry between psychology and Tibetan (tantric) Buddhism: The Psychology of Buddhist Tantra, The Courage to Feel, The Wisdom of Imperfection, Preparing for Tantra and Feeling Wisdom.

Rob’s style of teaching is oriented towards opening a dialogue around the material that is being explored. This is to maintain a spirit of exploration and creativity in the way tantra is integrated into Western experience, rather than holding to rigid prescriptions of practice.
