The Aro gTér is a Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist tradition concerned with transforming our experience of everyday being. We aim to engender cheerful courage, perceptive consideration, graciousness, sincere determination, creativity, natural gallantry, and spaciousness. Our teachers are not monks or nuns, but rather ordained Tantrikas who live quite ordinary lives. Aro gTér teachings come to us from a lineage of enlightened women, including a female Tantric Buddha, Yeshé Tsogyel, and the visionary Lama, Aro Lingma. The Vajrayana path is suited to those who use their everyday circumstances as the path to realisation and who appreciate humour.
