Rachael Wooten is a psychologist and Jungian analyst who has practiced meditation in the Tibetan tradition for over a decade. While studying at the Jung Institute in Switzerland in the 1990s, she began to study the practice of the Twenty-one Taras. In 1996, she was initiated into the practices by her Tibetan teacher, Lodro Tulku Rinpoche. Soon afterward she assisted Rinpoche in translating a set of twenty-one Tara meditation practices from Tibetan into English. She went on to create a beautiful set of cards for meditation, which she calls the Tara Cards. She is now writing a book of extensive commentaries to accompany the cards.
Rachael studies and writes about the interconnection of psychic wounding and healing with religious experience and spiritual practice. Rachael leads Tara meditation groups in Raleigh, NC and leads Tara workshops for RCWMS from time to time. She is a former member of the Board of RCWMS.
