This year’s South West Dharma Celebration, which is open to everyone, will include the Blessing Empowerment and teachings on the practice of Wisdom Buddha Vajrapani.  We will learn how to connect to our own potential for inner peace and lasting happiness–as well as receiving positive energy and spiritual power into our hearts.

Kadam Bridget will also give talks on the healing nature of Buddha’s wisdom teachings and how we can use these to help ourselves and others.
