20-22 April Green Tara Empowerment
Friday evening through Sunday lunch, it is possible to come just for Saturday (session times: 9am, 11am, 4pm, 7:30pm)
Tara is our enlightened mother who cares for us, protecting us from danger and leading us on correct paths. Tara is a female Buddha, the embodiment of fearless enlightened wisdom.
Tara means 'liberator' and indicates that she possesses the actual power to liberate all living beingss from fear and suffering permanently. How wonderful!
A Empowerment is a blissful guided meditation and ceremony. The blessings we receive are very powerful and help ripen our own Buddha nature. During this empowerment we will receive the transmission of Tara's blessed mantra: OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA.
4-6 May Meditation & Mindfulness
Friday evening through Sunday lunch (session times: 9:30am, 11:45am, 4pm, 7:30pm)
Meditation and mindfulness are practices that help us remain calm, clear and positive all the time, even when faced with difficulties and challenges. We need to learn to train our mind so that we can overcome negative states of mind and increase states of mind that promote inner peace and happiness. Join this weekend course to develop the skills needed to face up to the busyness of modern life. It's important for our own welfare and the welfare of those around us.
