Green Tara Empowerment
Sensei Doug Duncan
Saturday, July 22, 2017
Green Tara represents the union of wisdom and compassionate activity. In the deepest sense, Tara is the matrix of all life, the womb of becoming, the symbiotic communing of all living beings and life processes. She is the mystery of community-in-action. To realize her essence, is to realize the profound interdependency of all forms of life, and to enter a way of living that embodies great fearlessness, courage, deepening understanding and respect along with a vast array of capabilities for nourishing community in all its forms and manifestations.
Sensei Doug Duncan has been practicing the teachings of awakening for more than 40 years. He is well versed in Buddhist and Western philosophy and practices, as well as contemporary psychology, consciousness studies and art.
Doug with his partner Catherine founded Clear Sky Meditation Centre in BC, where they are based, ten years ago. Having lived overseas for many years and traveled extensively, they also draw on intercultural and trans-cultural experience to broaden the range and depth of their understandings of liberation that they share with others.
Their engaged compassion, sense of humor and combined wisdom will enrich your life with exploration & discovery. Click for their full bios: Teacher's Full Bios

What is Dana?
Teachers give the teachings of awakening (Dharma) freely so that anyone, no matter their financial means can attend classes. Each time one receives teachings, it is an opportunity to consciously practice generosity. Giving money and other means of support expresses gratitude and support to the teacher and helps to ensure that these teachings continue. Each person receiving Dharma teachings determines the kind and amount of Dāna according to one’s heart and one’s financial means. When deciding how much to offer, one should think about what these teachings mean to you and try to give accordingly. It is recommended that students make an offering of dāna at the beginning of a class or retreat to establish the intention to make the most of this opportunity for one’s own progression and for the benefit of all others.
