Medicine Buddha Empowerment Sat 4th Feb

Buddha taught that all disease originates in our deluded states of mind, which throw the inner energy of our subtle body out of balance. The Medicine Buddha empowerment connects us with the healing power of all the enlightened beings, bringing our own inner elements into equilibrium and gradually giving us the power to heal others. This empowerment is like a long guided meditation that establishes within us a deep connection with Medicine Buddha, which empowers us to engage in the spiritual practices that will eventually lead us to become Medicine Buddha ourselves.

Cultivating Good Relationships 18th February

Why is it that so often our relationships and interactions with others result in painful emotions? Why does what appears to be a “perfect match” so often end in conflict? Why can’t we live in harmony with our colleagues and friends? The answer to all these questions can be found within Buddha’s teachings on love, desire, and attachment. By learning to distinguish between these very different, but often mixed states of mind, we can establish the foundation for lasting harmonious relationships. Taught by Kate Faulkner
