Forgiveness

Saturday, March 17, 10am-12:30pm

Many of us hold anger in our hearts either because we blame others for harming us, or ourselves for our mistakes.  However, this way of thinking and these negative feelings only destroy our inner peace.  Learn how to acknowledge and then let go of past hurts.

Introduction to Tantra

Saturday, April 21, 10am-12:30pm

Sutra teachings are Buddha’s public teachings where he encourages us to attain enlightenment. In his Tantric teachings, his esoteric teachings, we are given a clear vision of what enlightenment is and special tools to accomplish this sublime state swiftly. In Kadampa Buddhism, we practice the union of Sutra and Tantra.  In this workshop, Gen Delek will demystify the practice of Tantra and show us how to integrate it into our other meditation practices. This workshop will be helpful for those wishing to attend the International NKT Summer Festival this year.
