“When we become a Buddha our happiness radiates eternally as compassion, nourishing all living beings and gradually drawing them into the same state.” Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, How to Transform Your Life.

The empowerment is a sublime guided meditation through which we develop a relationship with Avalokiteshvara and to a beautiful optimistic vision of possibility and transformation in which we receive and radiate love, compassion and wisdom.

Through imagination, guided meditation and blessings, we feel personally empowered to become the person we wish to be, to progress towards our own enlightenment.

This event is suitable for anyone wanting to draw closer to Buddha and their spiritual potential. Everyone welcome!


Retreat: The Three Principal Aspects of the Path
During the Sunday retreat, we will take a deep dive into the remarkable commentary in Mirror of Dharma and oral instructions on The Three Principal Aspects of the Path so as to uncover its hidden depths and sublime power to change our mind and heart swiftly.
