Introduction to Buddhist Faith

Saturday April 6 | 10 – 11:30 am

With Kadampa Teacher, Katherine Brown

Taking to heart the advice that faith should be our main practice, this monthly class series offers the opportunity to explore what our practice of faith entails and how we can overcome seeming obstacles so that our mind of faith develops and deepens. The promise of faith in a Buddhist path is freedom from sorrow and suffering, in this life and countless future lives—for ourselves and others. But what does faith in a Buddhist path mean? In guided meditations and by drawing on passages from Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s books we will delve into this and other questions, such as: What, for a Kadampa, is faith (and what it is not)? What does it mean to have faith in Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha? What benefits come from a mind of faith? Why is faith essential to our spiritual growth? What are the benefits of faith in a Spiritual Guide?

This class is suitable for everyone. No experience necessary.

The Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Vajrasattva

Saturday, April 20th | 10am – 5pm

With Resident Teacher Gerry Donovan

Within our minds is an extraordinary treasury – our potential for limitless joy, love, compassion, and wisdom. Through receiving the profound blessings of Buddha Vajrasattva we can purify our minds and develop the strength needed to stay peaceful, positive and confident and help others do the same.

The empowerment is a blessing ceremony and guided meditation through which we develop a special connection to Buddha Vajrasattva, bringing great power to the practice of purifying our minds.

This program is suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners alike.

Everyone is welcome!
