Tashi Karo profile aprill 2016

Karo Tashi

I was born in 1983 in Warsaw, Poland and later trained in Shamanism which has greatly expanded my understanding of the source of human happiness and well-being.

To deepen my knowledge of the mind and the causes of suffering, in 2011-2013 I undertook rigorous training in transformative meditation at The Three Doors Academy in Berlin. There I was introduced to the wisdom of secular Buddhist practices, and to the Tibetan Yoga of Body, Speech, and Mind.

Since 2005 I have been living in the Edinburgh and Midlothian region of Scotland where I completed a degree in Psychology

Around that time, I became interested in trauma, tension, and stress, and started training in Trauma Release Exercise (also known as TRE), which I am still completing. This experience has given me a more scientific perspective on tension and stress, and the understanding that, as these are stored in the body of all mammals, talking therapy is not always sufficient to treat their symptoms and causes in humans.

Since 2005 I have been living in Edinburgh and Midlothian region of Scotland

Since then I have been undertaking a two-year study programme at the Mindfulness Association and will soon become a fully qualified Mindfulness Meditation teacher in July 2016.

In recent years, I have focused on traditional non-sectarian Buddhist teachings (Bon, Nyingma, Kagyu), and attended group retreats and teachings in Portugal, London and the Scottish Borders

My preferred way of deepening my meditation practice is going on solitary and silent retreats in nature.

meditation in nature

I am a very cheerful and rather wild person, yet at the same time disciplined and strongly committed to all the issues that for me are the most important―human growth and ecology.

I love to express myself through dance, human interaction, touch, music and art. I also need plenty of time for myself, which I spend on my own in nature to replenish my energy.

Rosslyn chapelAt the moment the subjects that fascinate me are: stabilising the mind, grounding in the body (Sacred Feminine), heart-connected sexuality and permaculture.

I offer individual sessions in Rosslyn (near Edinburgh) and on Skype, as well as classes and programmes in and around Edinburgh.

I have recently designed programmes that combine online self-study and face-to-face interaction. The underlying idea is to create a special moment for yourself within your schedule and gain independence doing the course exercises at home; while at same time still attend group gatherings where everybody can share their experiences about what they have learnt in their personal processes.

MY PROCESS:

As I child, I was a daydreamer who when at school gazed out at the trees through the windows and did not pay attention to what happened in the class room.

Deeply loving all creatures, wild and creative in my self-expression. Over time I have turned into a rebel who refuses to comply with the oppressive demands of patriarchy and the capitalist system.

I faced many intense challenges in my early life, which in Shamanic terms I have come to understand as part of the road to self-empowerment.

awaken wooman process of creatingRunning away from a comfortable yet not heart-connected life in Warsaw in the summer of 2005 I traveled to Edinburgh and decided to put down my heart’s roots here.

Being a naturally free spirit it took me over 10 years to acknowledge that this was to become my home. I spend most of my time in the quiet of Rosslyn and enjoy the magic atmosphere of the Chapel and the healing properties of the forest.

My path is simple and joyful. I am not so interested in esoteric teachings but rather in the practical tools that enable me and my clients to ground ourselves in this reality. Thus I endeavour to awaken our inner strength and the conviction that if we want to live a better and happier life we need to take responsibility for co-creating a better world.

I have been to several of Karo’s events and enjoyed every one! Karo Tashi has a warm intuitive ambience that guides her in this work and a warm smile. I would say the time spent with Karo Tashi has provided me with important milestones on my own journey providing insightful and useful tools to take away with me. And quite often a sense of having had a lot of FUN !

Fantastic facilitator and well worth going along to this.I felt things shifted after attending one of these gatherings!

Mark Davidson  (business coach)

The Moon Circle session facilitated by Karo Tashi left me calm, refreshed and with a big smile on my face. I will certainly try to make other ones.

”The weekend is an invitation to attend a deep process, combining consciousness, sharing, movement, breath, sound, and touch. It is also a celebration of the Eros and intimacy of life”. – B. Milton

We will be working with our boundaries and active co-creation of safe space throughout the journey.
Movement helps to connect us back to our primate/amphibious nature. Breath connects us to a primary experience of reality. Sound creates frequencies of vibration to connect us back to the greater oneness around us. Touch is the form of nutrition that is vital to creating a sense of bliss and ease in human beings.
