Compassion in Action -A Special Mandala and Feeding Your Demons Event 
The Vajrayana meditation practices work with our emotions as doorways to awakening. Instead of trying get rid of an emotion we work with it to develop understanding and to free ourselves of encumberment. 
Working with a mandala practice you are transforming the energy of an emotion with the sound, color and light…literally illuminating that energy in your body. In Feeding Your Demons we are paying attention to the Maras or (inner demons) and asking what they need. In paying attention they are transformed. These are two similar yet different methods of transformation that are part of our sangha's meditation practices. Ellen will join us in the first part of class to talk about the intersection between our mandala  work and Lama Tsultrim's Feeding Your Demons practice. 
Cynthia Rubenstein (a certified Feeding Your Demons therapist.) will offer teaching on this powerful practice and guide us in the meditation. Don't miss this combination!

May all beings benefit!

Key West Tara Mandala is a Florida Keys Sangha that gathers to meditate and study together within the teaching lineage of Lama Tsultrim Allione.  
The Sangha is led by Ellen Booth Church (Yeshe Choepel).
Those new to, or experienced in meditation are welcome.

"All major religious traditions carry 
basically the same message, 
that is love, compassion and forgiveness . . . 
the important thing 
is that they should be a part of our daily lives."
