IDC FB 2.jpgInner Freedom of Letting Go and Green Tara Empowerment

Autumn weekend getaway at the beautiful Lorne House and Estate

 November, 6pm Fri 1st  – 2pm Sun 3rd    with Kadam Bridget Heyes

Our daily lives are often busy, frantic and with constant focus on the next thing. We rarely experience stillness and peace and often harbour feelings of anxiety and fear that we may lose our health, our possessions and those important to us.

The guided meditations and talks on this peaceful weekend getaway will offer ways to help you let go of these feelings and to begin to live a life of fearlessness, contentment and wisdom.

You’ll be introduced to practical and enjoyable buddhist meditation practices, powerful techniques to bring about deep inner transformation and healing.

Saturday will also include the Empowerment of Green Tara who embodies fearlessness and wisdom. This Empowerment is a powerful and peaceful guided meditation to connects us with our own potential for living fearlessly. There will also be an explanation on using the Green Tara sadhana and mantra practice.
