White Tara Empowerment Weekend
Creating Peace with Wisdom
Friday 19:30–21:00pm / Saturday 9:00–17:00pm / Sunday 9:00–12:30pm
We all wish to be happy. But we often lack the wisdom to know how to create the happiness and peace for ourselves and others. White Tara is the female Buddha of wisdom, long life and good fortune. Through receiving her powerful blessings, we will be able to strengthen and ignite our own wisdom. Through this profound clarity we will be able to develop the lasting and pure happiness we so long for. During this special weekend Gen Devi will grant the empowerment of Buddha White Tara – a blessed meditation, through which we can make a strong connection with this special Buddha – increasing our own long life, wisdom and good fortune.
After the empowerment, there will be guided meditations as well as commentaries to the meditation practice of Buddha White Tara.
Everyone is welcome to attend this special weekend course – no previous knowledge is required.
Gen Kelsang Devi is the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Center Switzerland as well as Kailash International Retreat Center in Törbel (Valais) and a modern Buddhist nun. She is a senior teacher of the New Kadampa Tradition having studied and practiced Kadampa Buddhism for 20 years under the guidance of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
During this time Gen Devi has engaged in extensive silent meditation retreat and has also taught and skilfully guided numerous group retreats around the world. Gen Devi’s experience makes her teachings and guidance in retreats very powerful, clear and practical. Her joyful warmth and humour make them accessible to everyone. She is an inspiring example of modern Buddhism in practice and is dedicated to helping everyone find peace in their minds through the experience of meditation and to use Buddha’s timeless teachings to discover real happiness in modern life.
