More than 2,500 years ago, Buddha Shakyamuni opened the door to enlightenment. What he revealed in that moment – the sublime state of boundless happiness, freedom and the compassionate ability be of limitless benefit to others – is still available to all of us, right now.

An empowerment is a blissful and inspiring guided meditation through which we connect directly to Buddha’s enlightenment and awaken our own potential – or Buddha nature – so as to actualize it ourselves. Kadam Morten will also give a commentary on the practice Prayers for Meditation through which we make our meditations more powerful. Everyone is welcome.

Families with children under the age of 11 will be seated in the downstairs meditation room which will have a video-link of the empowerment and activities for the kids during the breaks. No charge for children.
