One of the many things artist LeahVani is known for is wearing beautiful scarves and she has quite a personal collection. She decided to gift some of her scarves to a fund raiser for the Kauai Tara Dance Sangha to insure that everyone could get to our Annual Tara Dance Retreat on the north shore of Kauai (August 2014).
This inspired her sangha so much that after the scarf sale they decided to do a bake sale at their next meeting. Trishana Star, a Level 2 Tara Dhatu Student Teacher wrote…..
At our next practice we’ll have a Confection Sale with baked and non-baked treats: pies, cakes, cookies, dried fruits, and confections. The proceeds from the sale of these items will go towards our Tara Camp Financial Aid Fund.

SCARVES, Lingua Franca of the Body through Life’s Weavings
Honoring the Visuddha 5th Chakra and the Age of Communication
Honoring Prema Dasara
And All of the Melodious and Dancing Taras Every Where
Dancing the daily array
The colors accord with the day;
A joy to adorn
To again be reborn
In the carrousel of
We only veil to conceal
What later will surely reveal
The mystery of we
Who endeavor to see
The lessons still to unpeel.
I consider it unfathomable grace
To live at this formidable pace
In which to discover
The wonders that hover
Through the light whirls
So, enjoy these creations
Which have served for a moment
A throat of expressing
The joys of re – dressing
Dancing Tara Camp form.
May all be happy, free, liberated, fulfilled
On all levels of being and beyond,
to benefit all beings
