your HOST, TENLEY WALLACE (Thinley Wangmo)
Photo at one of my favorite places in the world, Tikse Gompa (monastery) rooftop, surrounded by Dakini Lands of the Tibetan Plateau, just down the road from my Tibetan community.
My intimate life with the Dakinis is too long to share here. But naturally, some will be told throughout the 6 week Immersion. I owe this profound, life changing, and intimate relationship first to my adopted Tibetan family, the beautiful Khangsars, who live on the Indian side of the Tibetan Plateau. The Dharma daily life example they and their community shared with me for the first time 20 years ago, totally changed me. And I began wondering (and LOTS of wandering!)… what is Buddhism… where, who, how can I learn? VERY LONG story from that point lead me to the sacred land and home of Lama Tsultrim Allione. She was extremely generous, and offered me a scholarship to the very first offering of her “Mandala of the 5 Wisdom Dakinis,” somewhat of an experiment she told us. That experiment unfolded to become one of the most significant turning points of my life, and became the main focus of her teachings for many years. It was on her land, called Tara Mandala, in the sweet little red canvas yurt gompa that she radically, profoundly, and lovingly pulled back the Veils, welcoming me whole body, spirit, mind into the Realm of the Dakinis. That was sometime around 2003. My life woven with the phenomenal realm of the Dakinis has many wild, unbelievable, heartful, mind-blowing stories…many novels worth. It’s hard to imagine my life without the Dakinis. We are one in the same.
Welcome to this luscious, life changing journey. I am your passionate host and guide, Tenley Wallace. My Tibetan name is Thinley Wangmo.
As the founder of Temple Tribal Fusion®, you can feel safe knowing, for the past decade, I have been holding women’s hands across thresholds of transformation and restructuring one’s lifestyle.
Yes, it is intimate, raw, real, and we have to be willing to get vulnerable and still ~ for this awakens our power.
I have been providing these life-enhancing experiences in group courses both online and in person, along with 1-on-1 private sessions, all of which include 1 or more of the following: dance, yoga, embodiment practices, fast path transformational modalities from both our time and the ancients.
Leveraging women to shift from a life of mundane into sacred, inspired, sensual, and authentic is my great joy and devotion! ooxx

“Sacred dance figured in deity yoga, sacramental feasts, and ritual mandala enactments…Yoga practitioners donned ritual regalia, sat in the configuration of the mandala they were enacting, and performed dance and song in order to body forth the deities of the mandala.
“The enraptured women, ornamented as deities, flushed by dancing, and glowing with heightened awareness, could then receive worship, bestow blessings, and confer <their ultimate> powers.”
…One of my all time favorite quotes from my super hero, Professor Miranda Shaw in her extraordinary book, Buddhist Goddesses of India. My body and soul longs to live in this level of devotion, ritual, community, practice. This Immersion is my prayer and invocation to bridge these ancient sacred ways with our modern lives.
I invite you into this sensuously sacred journey, to explore your passion, power, depth, mind, body, energy. And awaken together into a lifestyle that satisfies, nourishes, and inspires us on every level.
Who are the Sky Dancing Dakinis ?
“Sensuously beautiful, vibrantly alive, she blazes with vitality and irrepressible dynamism, reveling in the sheer pleasure of being…Worldly appearances swirl around her as rainbow clouds of illusion through which she dances and soars into total freedom.” Dr. Miranda Shaw in Buddhist Goddesses of India
“The dakini is a force of truth…wherever we cling, she cuts; whatever we think we can hide, she reveals.” Sapchu Rinpoche in Wisdom Rising
“Refers to anyone who cuts through illusory deceptions,” Khandro Rinpoche interview by Study Buddhism
“They remind us to transform our ‘daily life’ into The Path, using every moment of experience as an opportunity for…practice and insight.” Dr. Miranda Shaw in Buddhist Goddesses of India
“She is dancing the wild tandava dance of Shiva at the end of the aeon.” Elizabeth English in her book, Vajrayogini.
“The dakinis are the most important element of the enlightened feminine in Tibetan Buddhism…If we are not willing to invite the dakini into our life, then we cannot enter these subtle states of mind. Sometimes dakinis appear as messengers, sometimes as guides, and sometimes as protectors,” Lama Tsultrim Allione in Michaela Haas’ book, Dakini Power
Meet the dakinis
They are vast and numerous. Here are a few…
Dorje Pagmo ~ Tibetan
Vajravarahi ~ Sanskrit
Her vibrant Red hue embodies the symbol of the Feminine and Shakti, “Universal Feminine Energy.” Pagmo and Varahi refer to the Sow-pig Goddess. Dorje and Vajra are the indestructible lightning bolt and energy of this branch of Buddhism. In her crown is the squealing sow, with a sound so great, it reaches all corners and depths of the universe, awakening beings from their unconscious slumber.
Born in 1055, Machig Labdron became one of the most recognized Tibetan Buddhist teachers. She developed a highly significant practice still valued and practiced today, which has spread around the world. This yogini was a mother, teacher, and involved in the world, as well as spent much time in retreat. She attained the ultimate fruits of yogic discipline, and awakened as a fully realized Dakini. She is a superb symbol and example of women fully living as Dakini.
The sole mother, blue-black Troma Nagmo. Her demeanor is extremely wrathful, dancing in an expanse of blazing wisdom inferno. The wrath of Dakinis is not anger, but embodies the fearless, ferocity, commitment, and determination to free all beings from suffering. This power enables Troma to emanate boundless compassion, touching ALL beings…no one is forgotten in Her reach.
What might a fearless and determined commitment to yourself look or feel like, that would actually reduce your suffering, and bring more sense of freedom?? How might this affect people around you?
