In October, 2020, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche did a Zabtik Drolma (Green Tara) Puja in Taipei and gave a teaching on it. The transcripts for that teaching are available here. Zabtik Drolma is open to everyone and no prerequisites are required. Rinpoche has said that anyone who would like to do the practice may do so.

As I said, this is really, really, personally my favorite puja. I think there are several reasons for that. Tārā is sort of a mother-like figure, and being female she is known to be always quick to respond. Of course, this is all dualistic thinking. But since we are dualistic, as you know, what choice do we have? Also, Tārā is one of the four main deities practiced by those great people at Nalanda University such as Nāgārjuna – even by the big, grand, great Nāgārjuna. I personally can say that the Tārā puja has helped me in so many ways.
