  • Live a happier life with improved relationships

  • Become empowered by the blessings of the Buddha of loving-kindness

Come to just one day, or all three!

Friday 7:30-9pm
Public Talk

Saturday 9am-6pm
The Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Maitreya
& commentary to the practice

Sunday 9am-3pm
Teachings and Meditations on Loving-Kindness
followed by Community BBQ (Vegetarian)

Buddha Maitreya is a manifestation of the loving-kindness of all the Buddhas. Receiving the empowerment of Buddha Maitreya directly connects us with our potential to be loving, kind and peaceful. Through our own experience we will understand how keeping a loving heart creates happiness in all of our relationships and is the best protection from problems and pain.

Gen Kelsang Dornying, visiting from Australia, will grant this empowerment on Saturday morning, and give practical teachings on how we can heal our heart and develop profound love by relying upon Buddha Maitreya. On Sunday afternoon, there will be a special vegetarian lunch to conclude the event.

Everyone is welcome.
