About the Empowerment
On this special day course, our Resident Teacher, Kelsang Luma will grant the empowerment of Thousand-Armed Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion. Through developing our love, empathy, and compassion we can bring great meaning, happiness, and benefit to ourselves and those around us. Quite simply, a good heart brings good results. The empowerment itself is a blissful guided meditation during which we will receive the blessings of this compassionate Buddha and awaken our own potential to become an enlightened Buddha.

This empowerment's only happened once a year in Christchurch so don’t miss out on this blissful day of connecting to Thousand-Armed Avalokiteshvara.

Who is the Empowerment for?
The Empowerment is suitable for everyone including beginners! You don’t need to be a Buddhist to attend or benefit. It is especially suitable for those who have been attending the Centre regularly and wish to go a little deeper and to discover more about the tantric aspects of Buddhism, where we use the power of our imagination and deeper levels of mind to accomplish powerful inner transformation.

What will happen at the Empowerment?
Empowerment takes the form of a series of guided meditations which bestow upon us special blessings that heal our mind and awaken our potential to become pure enlightened beings. The teacher guiding the empowerment will have engaged in a week of silent retreat to prepare for guiding the meditations. Empowerments are also special opportunities to meet with other spiritual practitioners.

Are there any commitments I should know about?
Everything will be clearly explained during the empowerment, and there is no requirement to make any commitments. It is possible to take the empowerment simply with good motivation to benefit ourselves and be of benefit to others.

Cost includes lunch and morning/afternoon tea.
