About the Event

THURS 13 MAY  - TUES 18 MAY  

9 AM - 5 PM 

The course is for buddhist practitioners who wish to apply buddhist mind training in healing of oneself and others. Participants will receive Vajrasattva and Medicine Buddha empowerments, and learn to cultivate great compassion and the mind of enlightenment as inner qualities.

Through this course one learns to let go of the self-grasping mind of delusion, attachment, and anger. As a result, one develops realisation of the nature of mind, and learn to condition one’s body-speech-mind to be just like that of healer Medicine Buddha, in order to benefit all sentient beings. 

This course is taught in two parts
