Make Happiness the New Normal with Gen Dornying

A live streamed Workshop |  Saturday 10 Oct

We talk about a “new normal” – life with the coronavirus.                                         We say, let’s make happiness the new normal – virus or no virus.

Learn the relationship between your mind and the world so that you can keep your mind peaceful, and be happy all the time.

(It doesn’t just sound great, it’s also completely doable.)

Guided by Love – The Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Maitreya and One Day Retreat with Gen Dornying

A live streamed Empowerment and Retreat |  REPLAY

Imagine the world filled with loving-kindness. No fighting, violence, hostility or prejudice. 

Changing the world starts with changing ourselves. Start your journey to loving-kindness by getting to know Buddha Maitreya, the Buddha of loving-kindness, at our special blessing empowerment. After the empowerment, Gen Dornying will teach us how to create a world of loving-kindness by starting with ourselves. 

On Sunday (20 Sep), you can deepen your connection to Buddha Maitreya and your experience of loving-kindness at our one-day retreat. 

An empowerment is a special blessing ceremony that empowers you to engage in a particular spiritual practice. You don’t need any special equipment to participate from home: just a device to watch the live stream and a comfortable seat.
