Your inner journey flows in relationship with all life.

You are continually transforming and you trust the changes you make transform the world around you.

You hear the cries of the world and respond swiftly and with great compassion. The way a mother responds to her beloved child.

Your experience of reality is vast and unified. You see things others do not see. Contemplate things others never consider. While you know there is always work to be done, you simultaneously experience a pure and pristine world.

This is a question that cannot be answered but can only be lived. We are fortunate and blessed in the living of it.

At the same time there are paths and practices of those who came before us, and those who walk beside us now.

Tara Rising draws from the heart of Buddhist teachings, the wisdom of intuitive experience, and parallel discoveries in science

to challenge darkness and bring forth light

in the depths of who we are, and in the world.

We focus on 2 key areas of exploration:


Fundamental Luminosity



Divine Feminine Awareness


 What is Fundamental Luminosity?

The pristine expanse you trust as more real than any mundane reality. The one you might have known since childhood or discovered in the midst of trauma. The experience that rooted your bones and blood to the earth and then gave birth to all beings. The profound awakening as your body swallowed the stars.

Such oneness has been sought and seen by many.

Wisdom traditions (including Dzogchen and Vajrayana Buddhism, Advaita Vedanta, and various schools of Mysticism) describe a fundamental reality that underlies all existence and experience. Science is revealing similar truths.

These experiences are represented by names such as bliss, pure consciousness, and nonduality.

We use the term Fundamental Luminosity to express both the basic and primordial qualities of unitive experience.

What is Divine Feminine Awareness?

More than gender, the Divine Feminine refers to spacious, receptive, non-linear ways of being.

A heart that holds focused love for those close and panoramic love for all beings. A mind that embraces earth and sky. Past, present, and future as a single continuum. Deep wisdom.

The Divine Feminine journey is a simultaneous, non-linear, layered process of immersion, emergence, and emanation.

Tara Rising is a fresh iteration of life-long work. It is especially directed to the times we are living in. If you've been part of my offerings in the past you will see familiar threads arising as this work progresses. The difference is the placement of fundamental luminosity as the sky, the ground, the invisible warp threads of the tapestry we are woven into.


I know this

  1. To paraphrase Einstein, we cannot solve problems with the same level of consciousness that created them.
  2. There is something unique only you can offer. A way of seeing and being that is essential to these times.
  3. You are rare in the world. Needed by the world.
It is an honor lighting up the world with you.
