Vajrasattva Empowerment

Sunday 25th January 2015
10.30am – 5pm

An empowerment is where we make a special connection with an enlightened being.
Vajrasattva is an enlightened being who helps us to purify our mind.
We constantly find ourself with re-curring problems. The same old difficulties at work, at home, in our relationships and in ourselves. If we learn to purify our mind we can overcome all these problems and experience the true lasting freedom from our difficulties that we are so longing for. Through recieving the empowerment of Vajrasattva, we will receive his powerful inspiration, constant care and protection.
The day is open to everyone and is suitable for all levels of experience.

Cost: £25 includes vegetarian lunch and refreshments.

Secrets of Self Esteem

Increasing Self Esteem

Increasing Self Esteem

Sat 21st March 2015
10.30am – 4pm

What would it take to have higher self esteem?
What do we depend upon for our sense of self worth?

On this practical meditation day course, simple yet profound teachings will be discussed showing that external things are not the source of our good or bad feelings towards ourselves. It is our own attitudes that can provide the sense of peace and confidence that we are searching for.

A special emphasis will be on how to overcome our habit of doing ourselves down or beating ourselves up.
