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.
