We are a sangha dedicated to learning the teachings and meditation practices of the Buddha, Machig Labdron, and Lama Tsultrim Allione. We have weekly meditation practices, special monthly practices, and link into teleteachings offered through Tara Mandala Retreat Center. Our vision is to create a vibrant local Sangha that welcomes and supports teachers from around the world thus creating an open-hearted community of practitioners practicing for the benefit of all sentient beings.
The Phoenix Tara Mandala Sangha was created and is guided by Dr. Dana Siekman-Price DOM, L.Ac., at the request of Lama Tsultrim. Dana is currently in the authorized teacher's training program and focuses her personal meditation practice on the Magyu teachings and the Dzinpa Rangdrol cycle of teachings.
