A Community of Women in exploration of Yogic Buddhism


A Community of Women

Mind-Breath-Body-Relaxation-Yogic Practices 


Awakening Winds

Awakening Winds  is a  Buddhist home temple for women. Established to nourish the development of our innate wisdom for the benefit of all beings. 

We include meditation instruction and practice, study and exploration, day long retreats and Yogic postures. We celebrate the Vajrayana Buddhist Dakini and Tara archetype. 

Our gatherings and programs explore how the universal wisdom and compassion of ancient Buddhist traditions can transform our lives along with being a practical benefit to the world. Together we are seeking to uncover the truth within ourselves, develop peace of mind, find ignite the happiness and meaning we all long for. Together we create a circle of women.

All women are invited, this is a place for female healing and our particular expression of joy. Men are welcome and encouraged to join our morning and evening meditation practices. We love men, men are not excluded out of prejudice, but for the simple truth that we females have a way of expressing ourselves together, that is most often absent in the company of men.

The house is located in the beautiful hillsides of White Salmon WA over looking the Columbia Gorge.

Founder Devi Denson is a laywoman validated to teach Buddha Dharma and lead introductory Dakini, Tara practices by Tibetan Master Geshe Gyalten
