Heal Your Body & Mind Medicine Buddha Empowerment
Saturday 28th March 10.30am-3.30pm Retreat Sunday 29th March 11.30am- 3.30pm
Heal Your Body & Mind
Medicine Guru is a Buddha doctor whose function is to liberate living beings from outer and inner sickness. On this very special day, Gen Kelsang Dema will grant the Empowerment of Medicine Buddha. This is a beautiful ceremony with a long guided meditation through which we receive powerful blessings on our body, speech and mind. Through this we will be empowered to heal both ourselves and others, and improve our ability to overcome all our unpeaceful minds which destroy our happiness and peace of mind.
The Empowerment will be granted by Gen Kelsang Dema who is the resident teacher at Chenrezig KBC. Dema has been a disciple of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche for 16 years. She teaches in a very practical, clear, light-hearted and down-to-earth manner enabling people to easily put newly gained knowledge into practice in their modern daily life
On Sunday Gen Kelsang Dema will help us to gain deeper experience of how we can use the meditation practices of Medicine Buddha to benefit both ourselves and others. To attend these sessions you need to have received the Empowerment of Medicine Buddha.
