Irish Dharma Celebration 2019 –
Inner freedom of letting go
and Green Tara empowerment

November, Fri 1st – Sun 3rd | with Kadam Bridget Heyes | Lorne Estate, 30 Station Rd, Holywood, Northern Ireland, BT18 0BP

Our daily lives are often busy, frantic and with constant focus on the next thing. We rarely experience stillness and peace and often harbour feelings of anxiety and fear that we may lose our health, our possessions and those important to us. The guided meditations and talks on this peaceful weekend getaway will offer ways to help you let go of these feelings and to begin to live a life of fearlessness, contentment and wisdom. You’ll be introduced to practical and enjoyable buddhist meditation practices, powerful techniques to bring about deep inner transformation and healing.

Saturday will also include the Empowerment of Green Tara who embodies fearlessness and wisdom. This Empowerment is a powerful and peaceful guided meditation to connects us with our own potential for living fearlessly. There will also be an explanation on using the Green Tara sadhana and mantra practice.

Kadam Bridget Heyes is known for her clear teachings, compassionate heart and deep understanding of Buddhist wisdom. A Buddhist teacher and senior student of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche for over 25 years and the National Spiritual Director within Kadampa Buddhism for the UK and Ireland.

Lorne Estate boasts 4 star ensuite accommodation with beautiful extensive grounds and woodlands, just minutes from the beach. Accommodation prices include session fees and vegetarian or vegan meals.
