Have No Fear - Green Tara Empowerment
A Special Weekend Event
with Gen Kelsang Sangye
Saturday 24 - Sunday 25 November 2018

MORE INFORMATION

In today's modern world we face many challenging situations which disturb and trouble our minds. We all need help to pacify these fearful thoughts. Through making a connection with Tara we can learn simple methods through which we can swiftly receive her care, bringing confidence and peace to ourselves as well as benefiting those we care for. In addition through Tara meditation practice we have the special opportunity to develop our potential for inner wisdom to destroy our fear, as well as a compassionate good heart.

An empowerment is a beautiful ceremony including special meditations and guided visualisations in which we make a close connection with an enlightened Buddha and receive their blessings. This helps us in our meditation practice and daily life. This weekend includes a Sunday Retreat.
