Session 1: Ingnite our Healing Wisdom from Within
In this workshop Gyalten Sengye will provide practical tools to help awaken and connect with the innate wisdom and healing qualities from within. These techniques can help us to find happiness and balance within our lives. With an ancient and powerful practice you will learn how to combine a simple yet profound meditation technique, combined with a Sacred Mantra and help unlock the essence of our true nature. May love and compassion light the way for all beings. Om mane padme hung
Session 2: Metta Meditation (Heart Opening Practice)
This simple, yet so profound guided mediation/practice, will open our hearts to loving kindness and compassion both for ourselves and for all beings. This in turns helps to dissolve away the blockages of negative emotions, and to help us connect with others, especially those that we struggle with most. When our hearts are closed, when we lack vulnerability we close ourselves down to all feelings, not just the negative ones but the the good ones too! Be aware that this practice can have far reaching effects of loving kindness and compassion to all beings! Much love and may you all have a wonderful sacred earth festival.
