Key West Sangha
Key West Tara Mandala is a Florida Keys Tibetan Buddhist Sangha within the teaching lineage of Lama Tsultrim Allione and led by Ellen Booth Church (Yeshe Choepel).
The Sangha is open to everyone from those new to meditation to those who are experienced practitioners. People of all faiths join us in meditation and contemplation.
Our practices include Prajnaparamita, a nature of mind practice written by Lama Tsultrim; Shamatha also by Lama Tsultrim; a chod practice written by Namkai Norbu Rinpoche, Zhitro written by Mingyur Namkhai Dorje and the Dakini and Yab Yum Mandalas.
Our time together includes formal practice, weekly teachings, study of texts and teachings related to practices, and discussion.
In Buddhist tradition, there is no fee for participating in our regularly scheduled meditation sessions. Two baskets are provided at teachings. We ask people to contribute what they can to both. One donation helps cover rent and materials, the other is an offering to the teacher in appreciation for her time and spiritual teachings. It is a free will donation. No one is turned away for lack of funds.
