Medicine Buddha Empowerment & Weekend Retreat

Friday Evening 8 November - Sunday lunchtime 10 November

Medicine Buddha
Medicine Buddha is the embodiment of all enlightened healing energy. An empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation through which we will receive the powerful blessings and inspiration of this enlightened being. According to Buddha, all disease and suffering, both mental and physical, are caused by our negative minds. All of us have had to deal with physical or mental illness, either our own, or that of a loved one. Where do these illnesses come from and is there a way to heal them? If we are willing to work at the deepest levels of body and mind we can remove the most subtle causes of illness through the practice of Medicine Buddha.
