Awaken a Kind Heart: Buddha Maitreya Empowerment Saturday, March 26 10am to 4:30pm

How powerful is your love? How much more powerful could it be? When we have a strong loving mind, our whole experience of the world changes. It brings us inner peace, joy and meaning, and others around us feel it and respond to it. By taking steps to improve our mind of love we can bring real tangible benefit to our world.

Buddha Maitreya is the embodiment of the loving kindness of all the Buddhas. The empowerment is a blissful guided meditation that connects us to Maitreya’s enlightened love giving us great power in our spiritual development.

In the commentary we will learn a special meditation practice where through identifying strongly with our potential, with Buddha Maitreya's quality of universal love, we can bring about swift inner transformation.  In this way we can all begin to become someone whose love transforms the world.

Everyone is welcome!
