Tantra: The Power of Imagination every Sunday, 11:00am – 12:15pm with Gen Khedrub

Imagination is a remarkable capacity of our mind - all the things that appear in everyday reality are first created with imagination. This is true for buildings, roads and new technology, and for the subtle inner states of mind that determine our quality of life. 

In recent years there has been an increasing awareness of the power of our imagination in fields such as business psychology and sports psychology. 2,500 years ago, Buddha taught Tantric meditations for awakening this creative power within all of us. They are aimed at bringing about authentic internal change, to finally become the confident, radiant, peaceful person we want to be. Learn, explore, and empower yourself.

This summer we have an unprecedented spiritual opportunity. Due to the Covid pandemic, the International Kadampa Summer Festival (July 30 - August 14) will be held online. And for the first, and perhaps last, time ever Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments will be given online. This will enable so many people to embark upon this most sublime practice of meditation, without having to engage in extensive travel. These classes are a perfect preparation for the International Summer Festival.
