Abiding in Wisdom - Je Tsongkhapa Empowerment

Je Tsongkhapa is the embodiment of the compassion, wisdom and spiritual power of all the Buddhas. In this blessing empowerment we will make a close connection with this enlightened being and awaken our own limitless spiritual potential.

After receiving Guru Tsongkhapa’s powerful blessings, Kelsang Luma will guide a silent retreat on receiving the attainments of the stages of the path and the seven types of wisdom, in conjunction with the Heart Jewel practice. 

On this special break away enjoy inspiration, silence and inner peace.
