Empowerment: Saturday 27 June 2020
11.00am – 4pm

Guided Retreat: Sunday 28 June 2020
10.30am – 1pm


An empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation during which we can receive the blessings of a particular enlightened being. 

Great Mother Prajnaparamita is a female Buddha who is the manifestation of Buddha’s perfection of wisdom. By relying upon her, she will help us to overcome outer and inner obstacles, and will bestow upon us the realization of the higher perfection of wisdom, the essence of enlightenment. The day will include an introduction to the practice of Prajnaparamita, a powerful method to overcome difficulties and obstacles, and teachings on how to deepen our understanding of the blissful true nature of reality.

Everyone is welcome to attend this special day.

Guided Retreat Day

Following on from the previous day’s empowerment, we have a precious opportunity to spend a morning engaging in the practice of Prajnaparamita sadhana. Enjoy two sessions of chanted prayers and guided meditations designed to improve our wisdom and overcome difficulties and obstacles.
