What is an empowerment?
“An empowerment bestows upon us special blessings that heal our mental continuum and awaken our Buddha nature.” — Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
This empowerment is a transformative guided meditation through which we connect to Buddha Maitreya's enlightened mind. By receiving these inspiring blessings we can swiftly actualize our own potential and gain the confidence we need to progress along the spiritual path.
Who is Buddha Maitreya?
Buddha Maitreya is the manifestation of all the Buddhas’ realization of loving kindness, and the next Buddha that will appear in this world age.
Our main teacher at KMC Colorado is Kadam Lucy James. One of the senior teachers of Kadampa Buddhism, Kadam Lucy has taught extensively in England, Florida, and San Francisco, and helped set up many thriving meditation centers since 1981. She is regularly invited to teach courses around the United States and Europe due to her skill in presenting both simple and profound subjects with great clarity. For many years, one of her main jobs was to help with the editing and production of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s books, and she has engaged in extensive meditation retreat.
