The Great Goddess Tara - Mother of Kindness, Compassion, Benevolence
The Great Goddess Tara – Mother of Kindness, Compassion, Benevolence

The Tara Tantra Course is back in Ireland for the first time since 2012. We are very excited about this as there has been many people inquiring about the course. It will take a slightly different structure to normal, being run over a 2 day weekend every other month, rather than 2 hour classes weekly. You can read more about the course and structure here: Tantra course Dublin.

Having ran both tantra and yoga courses + workshops for a number of years in Ireland, Tara has a strong affinity with the emerald isle. You might be forgiving that Tara Yoga Centre was named after an Irish name. True, Tara is an ancient Irish name with the world famous the hill of Tara giving christian names to many Irish damsels over the years.

While we see it as a nice synchronicity Tara Yoga Centre is not actually called after the Hill of Tara. Tara is called after one of the 10 great cosmic powers – Tara. Although universal, these cosmic powers are most famous and revered in India. There you can find statues and shrines in most villages and town in much the same way you would find a sacred heart or Crucifixion in many Irish houses.

This cosmic power is the goddess of kindness compassion and benevolence. She is also the goddess that leads us across the ocean of false illusions (samsara) to what is actually important and the ultimate truth. This is why she was chosen as the name for our Yoga school – to help light the way for as many people as possible. This is why we are so excited to be returning to Ireland and bringing back fundamental, ancient practices from the East that are adopted and broken down to fit into everyday modern life in the West. We don’t just take these teachings and water them down – rather they are adapted and made meaningful in your everyday life. To see what this actually means we encourage you to experience the course directly for yourself.
