Open Your Dakini Wisdom Eyes to See the Beauty and Purity in the Ordinary

Subtle Body Training, DAKINI SERIES VIII

Online Five Week Series

Saturdays, October 15 – November 12, 2022

4 - 5:30 pm, Pacific Time


“Samsara’s phenomena cannot infect and

nirvana’s phenomena cannot benefit,

because mind is free from all extremes and limits.

In the sky there are no directions or sides.

Samsara’s countless desirable qualities and

nirvana’s measureless desireless qualities

always arise unobstructedly.

This is the essence and display of natural Wisdom Deity’s

magic dance. “

MAGIC DANCE by Thinley Norbu


JOIN Khandro-la and fellow pilgrims for DAKINI SERIES VIII, MAGIC DANCE OF THE SACRED AND THE PROFANE, a deep exploration of Dakini Wisdom that sees how the sacred can be found in the profane or the ordinary! The Dakini challenges us to expand our view of the human experience from limited habitual patterns to the magical display of the sacred. Her teaching is unconventional, fresh, immediate, personal, and intuitive. This exploration will be experiential and direct, connecting with our subtle, feeling, and energetic body. With much affectionate curiosity, we will let our wisdom eyes open through the Dakini’s magic dance of stillness, movements, chanting and breathing. Each week, we will explore a particular sequential movement as the Dakini’s Magic Dance, awakening us to the beauty of the embodied integration of the sacred and profane!

This series is inspired by a religious classic the Sacred and the Profane by Mircea Eliade who observes that the sacred manifests in space, time, nature, the cosmos, and life itself which is contrary to our conditioned view of the world as profane or secular. Magic Dance - The Display of the Self-Nature of the Five Wisdom Dakinis by Thinley Norbu is also a source of our exploration.

Whether you are just embarking on the path of Buddhist Tantric practice, and yoga, or have been studying and teaching for years, we invite you to join us for this unique and potent exploration of Dakinis. Come and join us to see what this Magic will unfold in you! This series could lead you to a unique and evolutionary home practice experience resulting in genuine transformation.


Subtle Body Training is an integrated, transformative spiritual journey based on advanced Tantric theory that weaves together tantric techniques of subtle body-oriented practices, chanting, meditation, and breathing practices as well as the contemporary discipline of the biomechanics of yoga.
