Democracy, Green Tara and the Power of Women with Robert A.F. Thurman +  Isa Gucciardi Ph.D. from Menla’s Embracing The Sacred Feminine 2016 Retreat

Professor Robert A.F. Thurman begins this video discussing sociologist Philip Slater’s books “A Dream Deferred: America’s Discontent” and the Search for a New Democratic Ideal” & “The Pursuit of Loneliness” and Marilyn Waring’s “Counting for Nothing : What Men Value and What Women Are Worth” relating their themes to daily Meditation, Democracy & the power of women.

Includes a detailed explanation of morphic resonance, the Green Tara Meditation & practice of deity yoga by Robert Thurman. Tara (Sanskrit: तारा, tārā; Tib. སྒྲོལ་མ, Dölma) or Ārya Tārā, also known as Jetsun Dölma (Tibetan language:rje btsun sgrol ma) in Tibetan Buddhism, is a female Bodhisattva in Mahayana Buddhism who appears as a female Buddha in Vajrayana Buddhism.

Recorded at Menla’s Vintage Barn in Phoenicia, New York March 2016 during the “Embracing The Sacred Feminine” Retreat with Isa Gucciardi & Robert A.F. Thurman.

 

“The concept of a Great Feminine principle is common to many cultural and religious traditions as the generator and caretaker of life. The images of the Great Feminine vary from tradition to tradition, but the values and qualities of these images are surprisingly consistent. This principle is often referred to as the Great Mother and is considered a protector and guardian of life.

In spiritual traditions in the Himalaya, the female deity Tara has many aspects- each considered to be an embodiment of different aspects of compassionate assistance.”

Isa Gucciardi, Ph.D. from www.sacredstream.org.
