Southern Dharma Celebration 2019  – You can book just for Saturday –

More information and booking: http://www.kmclondon.org/eventsandretreats/sdc2019/

Join us for a special weekend of blessings and inspiration. Kadam Bridget Heyes,  the NKT National Spiritual Director for the United Kingdom, will grant the empowerment of the female Buddha, Arya Tara and give practical teachings on how to develop and increase our wisdom and compassion. This ceremony is like a guided meditation that will help us to make a closer connection with Buddha Tara, so that we will come under her care and protection.

Arya Tara means “superior liberator”. Through relying upon her we can be rescued from all outer and inner fears. Ultimately she will guide us to liberation from all suffering and lead us to the peace of full enlightenment. Like a mother she protects us from all internal and external dangers.
