These days, perhaps more than ever, so many of us suffer from fear and anxiety and are overwhelmed by the stress of daily life and the instability in our world. In this talk and guided meditation, Kadam Morten will explore mindfulness methods, meditations and ways of thinking derived from Buddha’s teachings that will help us to become fearless in the face of adversity and deal with our negative emotions more confidently and effectively.
Lighten up, get fresh energy and be inspired! In this workshop, Kelsang Chondzin will show how, through meditation, you can enjoy more freedom and flexibility in your life. Instead of feeling stuck in difficult situations and unhelpful habits you can learn ways to deal with situations with a more flexible, creative and joyful approach.
The Mid-Atlantic Dharma Celebration is an annual regional Kadampa Buddhist celebration in Baltimore that includes teachings, a blessing ceremony called an empowerment, and guided meditations. An empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we receive powerful blessings that enrich our body, speech, and mind. This year, Kadam Morten will grant the empowerment of Buddha Maitreya, the Buddha of Loving Kindness. He will give teachings on The Power of Love…To Heal Our Heart and World. Everyone is welcome.
In this Festival, Gen-la Khyenrab will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Arya Green Tara. Enlightened Mother Arya Tara, manifestation of the swift, wind element, of all the Buddhas, is greatly delighted with those who sincerely practice Kadam Lamrim, the stages of the path to enlightenment. She promised Atisha, the Founder of Kadam Lamrim, to give her special care, protection and blessings to his followers throughout their life, and in life after life. Gen-la Khyenrab will further explain how we can recognize all conventional appearances as the magical, or illusory, play of the mind and how we can stop grasping strongly at their apparent differences through recognizing everything as a manifestation of emptiness, the actual nature of all things.
