The statue in the main hall is the embodiment of the female Buddha Tara: she who transforms obstacles into wisdom, sickness into embodied compassion, and fear into transcendent loving kindness.
With the time and talents of local sangha member Michael Lawrence, her home is being created as a focal point for the practice and teaching that occurs at Wonderwell.
The current contribution of $5000 towards the project is an offering in memory of a sangha member’s mother. The work and consecration will be complete by by April, but there is still the opportunity for all to participate in offering towards the total cost. Please help us pay for the custom stonework that will serve as a basis for the shrine. Lama Willa chose this particular element as a symbol of meditative stability we are cultivating and as an echo of the Nyingma and Kagyu ancestors who cultivated their deep insights during prolonged solitary retreats in the refuge of mountain caves. As well, the artisans behind the fine woodwork and masonry are native to the Vermont and New Hampshire regions and have imbued the overall design with the integration of elements with the architecture and esthetic of Wonderwell.
