Heart Jewel Workshop

Saturday May 18, 2024

10am – 1pm

With resident Teacher, Gerry Donovan

The Heart Jewel prayers, the concise and powerful core daily practice of Kadampa Buddhists, are the ideal way for us to take our meditation practice to a deeper, more profound level. In this practice, we receive the potent wisdom blessings of Je Tsongkhapa, the enlightened master whose Kadam Emanation Scripture forms the bedrock of modern Kadampa Buddhism.

We also come under the protective care of enlightened Dharma protector Dorje Shugden, who always helps, guides, and protects pure and faithful practitioners by granting blessings, increasing their wisdom, fulfilling their wishes, and bestowing success on all their virtuous activities.

In this half day workshop, we’ll discover the practice itself and engage in guided meditations to deepen our experience of the individual parts.

Everybody is welcome, no experience necessary!

Stories of the Buddhist Masters

Friday May 24 | 6:30-8:00

With Kadampa Teacher  Jason Valcourt

Before they became the famous masters who we love and revere, they had the same problems we do – maybe worse! Yet, they were able to gain mastery over their minds and attain the state of enlightenment. In each of these workshops we will read a story of a Buddhist master and explore how their particular transformational journey can encourage us to have confidence that we ourselves can grow and change. Learning from the experiences illustrated in their life stories, we will discuss the lessons of their journey, engage in meditation, and learn how to put these teachings into practice in our daily lives.

This program is suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners alike.

Everyone is welcome!
