I have participated in the Tara Mandala with Prema Dasara since 1989 when Prema began to share it beyond its birth place, the Island of Maui. In 1999 I participated in the first teacher training held on Kauai. Since then I have achieved an advanced level of participation in the teacher program and been given full permission to lead retreats and workshops. I have lead a Tara Mandala circle on Kauai, meeting every month, Participated in the 2001 Pilgrimage for Peace in India and Nepal as a Mandala leader, and have offered the dance in many different community settings, classes and celebrations.It is an honor to participate in the vision of Taradhatu, “uplifting humanity through the sacred arts”.
I have over 30 years of study and practice in the Traditions of Tibetan Buddhism. For many many years Lama Tharchin Rinpoche has been my heart teacher. www.vajrayana.org . I lived and worked at his retreat center Pema Osel Ling for two years 2007 – 2009 in the beautiful Redwood Mountains of Santa Cruz at, taking some time to focus on healing and family.
Hula is life, Hula saved my life at a time when I desperately needed to connect with my beauty and grace from the inside out. This wonderful tradition continues to be central in my well being. I am a member of the Kauai Hula School or “halau” Hula Halau Na Lei Kupua under the guidance of Loea Kawaikapuokalani and Kumu Susan Pa’ini’u Floyd and On island Ho’opa’a Fern Merle-Jones
