'Tiger' is used as a metaphor for our minds.  'Taming'  refers to coming to different understandings of ourselves using a programme of compassion based mindful exercises.

There will also be time to relax with guided visualisations, art materials, & experience of some of the programme from the book.

The weekend is open to everyone.

Taming the Tiger & its author, inspired what is now a world wide programme we call 'Tara Rokpa Therapy'.

For anyone interested in finding out more there will be a time given during the weekend for an overview of that process.

For anyone already planning on joining a group, this weekend can form part of an official introduction.
