Vajrasattva Empowerment Weekend

December 7 - 8|with internationally acclaimed meditation teacher Kadam Lucy James

By connecting with the transcendent Buddha of purification, Vajrasattva, we can dissolve away our bad habits, negativity, sickness, and obstacles, allowing our own mind’s natural purity and joy to shine through. Through purifying our mind, we will gradually come to experience a radiant world and lasting inner freedom. 

During this very special weekend we will receive the empowerment of Buddha Vajrasattva, along with inspiring, practical teachings on karma and purification practice.


Partially Guided Vajrasattva Retreat

December 9 - 13

This retreat is a powerful method for purifying our negative karma. By deepening our reliance on Buddha Vajrasattva in this retreat, we will cleanse our mind of delusions, negativities, and obstacles that both cause us suffering and hold us back from reaching our full inner potential. This retreat will be partly guided.
