THE BLESSING EMPORWERMENT OF DORJE SHUGDEN

KMC Florida is offering this empowerment:

Dorje Shugden is known as a Dharma Protector, a Buddha who easily pacifies obstacles and gathers all necessary outer and inner conditions for us to take Buddha’s teachings deeply to heart.
The empowerment is a blissful guided meditation that connects us to Dorje Shugden’s enlightened wisdom, giving us great power in our spiritual development.

Enjoy peaceful guided meditations and teachings on Buddha’s wisdom for our daily lives, and how to use the power of our mind to transform our life, with Kadam Carol Lutker.

Everyone is welcome!

Our classes are designed to give a broad practical introduction to Buddhist meditation, teachings, and practice. They combine guided meditation with practical spiritual advice that you can immediately apply as a method for improving the quality of your daily life. Through guided meditations, you will learn how to meditate, concentrate, and overcome distractions. You will also learn different meditation topics that help  overcome negative states of mind, such as anger, stress and strong attachment, and cultivate positive states of mind, such as patience and love.

 

Everyone is welcome – just come and experience a class for yourself.

I have enjoyed, learned, and benefited from every class, puja, empowerment, lesson, session, or activity-event that I have attended. The Principles of Wisdom and Compassion taught can be applied to most any situation a person experiences (regardless of their religious beliefs).
