Everyone seeks protection from fear. But all fear arises from a misapprehension of reality. In order to experience authentic refuge – real protection – we need to realize the true nature of things, emptiness.

On this country weekend meditation course, in the beautiful and blessed environment of our national temple, Kadam Morten will show how we can gain, and deepen, the experience of emptiness, leading to a fearless and joyful life of limitless possibilities, including our own enlightenment!

Topics will include the profound Dharma of true paths and true cessations, how to abide in blessings, and what being a Buddhist means. For those who wish to go for refuge in Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha, on Saturday evening there will be a beautiful refuge ceremony. Everyone is welcome.
