The Tantric Opportunity

What is a Highest Yoga Tantra Empowerment?

with Kadam Morten

Since our International Kadampa Summer Festival will again be held virtually, we have an unprecedented opportunity; for the first time in human history the Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments will be given online. Of course, this means that many more people will have the opportunity to receive these empowerments, and that we will all be able to receive them without having to engage in extensive travel.

Now is a good time to explore the meaning of Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments, so that we can decide whether or not we’d like to receive them.
In this day-long workshop, Kadam Morten will explain the significance of Highest Yoga Tantra: through talks and guided meditations, he’ll explore what a joyful and creative practice it is, the power it adds to our spiritual life, and how it integrates all that we learn at our Kadampa Centers and opens us up to an extraordinarily meaningful and blissful life.

If this sounds intriguing to you, we encourage you to join us for this workshop.
