Mandala of the Five Dakini’s Meditation - Full Practice

March 2nd, 2022

Mandala of the Five Dakini’s Meditation

Full Practice

This is a recording of a complete 5 Dakini Meditation Practice Session at the end of a 6 week study (recorded by Melissa Abbott during a zoom call at my friend Jo Haight Sarling’s home in Cocoa Beach, FL.), from a book study and meditation practice group studying the book “ Wisdom Rising” The Mandala of the Empowered Feminine, by Lama Tsultrim Allione. In the first 5 weeks we have studied the individual practices, attributes and states of each of the 5 Dakini’s. Sounding their Seed Syllables and embodying their attributes in meditation as a way of transformation burning through encumbered states of being, resulting in a more expanded unencumbered wisdom consciousness of each Dakini, week by week.  This is a Tibetan Buddhist Tantric Practice brought from India to Tibet about 800ad by Guru Rinpoche or Padma Sambhava. 

the Mandala as a cosmological system, and through the Mandala we experience the encumbered and transformed unencumbered states of the Dakinis (which are aspects of the sacred feminine). The Mandala being the one ground and the practice is an uncovering of our own enlightened awareness and transformation into enlightened presence.

Its been a beautiful journey learning the 5 Dakini Practices with all of the participants around the world including UK, Switzerland, and Argentina. Thank you for your involvements, synergy, focus, love, and interest. Special Thanks to Jo Haight Surling for having the practice at her home in Cocoa Beach and helping me coordinate the process. There really is something special about practicing in a group.

The Five Dakini’s practices work with transforming encumbered energies ( Samskaras) such as  procrastination, neediness, envy, jealousy, anger, fear etc into “The Wisdom Energies of the Dakinis evolved/transformed/manifersted to an unencumbered view”. The mandala/circle, elemental energies, directional energies, visualization, seed syllables, Uccara, etc are used in the Dakini practices.

Ultimately, the absolute level is beyond gender, how on a relative level men and women get to the ultimate level may be very different paths. Women have long thought they have to act like men to attain anything in this world. The cultural messages truly effect and disempower women on so many levels.

The Dakini is a messenger of spasciousness, a force of truth, a transitional primal power, a fierce compassion for change and upliftment.  I believe the recognition of feminine empowerment holds a key to cultural evolution and that awareness of practices line the Five Dakini’s .

I highly recommend you get the book and read it, until you get the book, tho, it is all right to come and practice and get a taste of it and see if it is for you. It is exciting work

I ask that we practice not only for ourselves but for the benefit of all.

Green Karma Dakini Practice

January 19th, 2022

Enlightened Feminine Empowerment Green Karma Dakini Meditation Practice

This is a portion of the Five Dakini Practice that assists you to transform encumbered states of consciousness, such as jealousy, competitiveness, envy, speediness, workaholic tendencies, and ambition, to all- accomplishing wisdom. 

You will visualize the Green Dakini and intensify your encumbered states to a powerful expanded and empowered dissolution of non-striving. 

This is from the practices of the Five Dakini’s from the “ Wisdom Rising” book by Lama Tsultrim Allione.  These practices come down to us from a Tibetan Tantric Buddhism female practitioner named Machig Lapdron and are over 1000 years old.

Fire Wheel Yoga Nidra Immersion with Singing Bowl Sound Scape

October 28th, 2021

Recorded Live at Steam House Hot Yoga & Pilates steamhousenh.com Monday Oct. 25, 2021 by Melissa Abbott melissaabbott.com with Singing Bowl Sound Scape after a Hot Power Vinyasa Class while in Savasana.

This Yoga Nidra is a beautiful Heart Based Meditation activating the Lunar Left Ida Nadi (relating to inhalation and objects of awareness) , the Central Sushumna Nadi (pure essence nature and Fire), and the Right Solar Pingala Nadi (relating to the exhale and the act of cognition) in a Caduceus meeting point at the base of the heart where all senses merge together creating an intensification/vibration of life energy transforming into a nourishing radiant wheel of Fire that uplifts the practioners natural vitality and transcendence. 

Best Practice is to lie or sit quietly, observing yourself, listen to the sound of my voice, headphones are great, relax and enjoy this guided Yoga Nidra. 

This is the set up meditation for a much longer practice of the Fire Wheel Meditation Sequence from Abinavagupta’s “ Tantrasara” Chapter 5, a 1000 year old Shaiva Tantra Text of Meditation Practices from Kashmir. The longer version is taught in retreats or in person. The set up itself is very affirming and a way to gather transcendent energy in the practitioner.
