Clear mind, peaceful heart

Talks & guided meditations
Oct, Sat 13th | 10:00 to 13:30 | with Kadam Adam | at G15 Western Gateway Building, Western Rd, Cork

Discover how to connect to the natural peace, clarity and potential of our minds through the practise of a special and highly practical meditation known as ‘The clarity of the mind’ meditation.

We will explore how this experience enables us to easily let go of unhealthy states of mind such as anxiety and fear, as well as perceived faults and limiting beliefs that we may hold about ourself. We will also see how this experience enables us to develop confidence in our ability to cultivate our inner potential for good qualities, inner peace and happiness.

Also, we will explore how this experience opens the door to gaining insight into the true nature of things, including ourself. We will realise that we are not as fixed, stuck or limited as we can often feel we are. In truth, we all exist in a state of profound freedom and limitless potential for positive change. Connecting with this sense of freedom and potential, we become confident that we can change and live the truly peaceful, happy and fulfilling life we would want.

Irish Dharma Celebration 2018 –
Healing the heart, awakening our potential
& Buddha Vajrasattva Empowerment

November, Fri 2nd – Sun 4th | with Kadam Bridget Heyes | Thomas Prior Hall, Clayton Hotel Ballsbridge, Merrion Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4

Everyone is warmly welcome to join the Irish Dharma Celebration 2018, which sees people gather from all over Ireland every year. It offers a unique opportunity to enjoy a deeply relaxing and inspiring weekend of practical teachings of modern Buddhism (as well as guided meditations) with internationally renowned Kadampa Buddhist teacher, Kadam Bridget Heyes.

Kadam Bridget will explain how we can all take control of the direction of our lives by understanding and living in accordance with the law of Karma. She will grant the blessing empowerment (on Saturday) and introduce us to the special meditation practise of Buddha Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification. This empowers us to deeply purify, or heal, the karma that gives rise to our present suffering and problems and find deep and lasting inner peace and happiness.

Also, she will explain how we can all learn to connect to and fully awaken our spiritual potential for good qualities – such as love, compassion & wisdom. In this way, we can develop the confidence that we and all others can become free of suffering, problems and fears, and move towards the happy and fulfilling life we all long for. Everyone is welcome, whether beginners or those with more experience of meditation & Buddhism.

In this way, we discover through our own experience, as we transform our mind, we transform our life, into the happy and fulfilling life we all long for. The evening is suitable for everyone, including complete beginners – and includes a talk and deeply relaxing guided meditation.

About the Empowerment

The empowerment is a deeply peaceful guided meditation through which we make a heartfelt connection with Buddha Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification. In this way we can begin and make progress, on the journey of purifying or healing the karma that gives rise to our suffering and problems, and fully actualise our spiritual potential for deep and lasting peace and happiness.

The art of gratitude

Talks & guided meditations
Nov, Sat 10th | 10:00 to 13:30 | with Kadam Adam | at G15 Western Gateway Building, Western Rd, Cork

Discover the power of the art of gratitude to experience a deep inner peace, happiness and contentment in our lives.

We can often be so focused on what we don’t have, we forget to appreciate and feel grateful for what we already have. Learn how the practice of meditating on, and being mindful of, gratitude enables everyone to fully appreciate life, others and our potential to live a life of genuine happiness and fulfilment. The emphasis will be on how to integrate this new found sense of gratitude and appreciation we learn on the course into every aspect of our life: work, family, friends, down-time etc. Suitable for beginners and those with more experience, the morning includes talks and guided meditations, with time for Q&A.
