Do you feel a bit stuck in life? Do you hold yourself back due to experiences you’ve had or feel haunted memories of the past? 

Join us for this special day event and learn how to deeply let go of and purify memories and habits we’ve brought with us from the past.

“This practice is a scientific method to purify our mind and transform it from an impure mind into a pure mind using Tantric technology.” Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra

An empowerment is a blessing ritual and guided meditation through which we make a deep connection with a Buddha and create the cause to awaken our own potential for enlightenment.

 In the afternoon, Gen Leksang will present an explanation of a special purification meditation practice that we engage in. This skilful and creative practice allows us to connect with the natural potential in our mind, heal the wounds of the past, and free ourselves from old and painful habits of thinking and acting. Through purifying our mind gradually we experience a wonderful lightness and inner freedom.  We are free to live a life based on wisdom and love, to experience a truly joyful heart and to become the person we really wish to be.
