Emptiness and Empathy Day Course

With Resident Teacher, Kadam John McBretney

If we dream of a butterfly, the butterfly appears vividly in all its detail, but when we wake up we realise it was just an appearance to our mind. Buddha said that the same is true for all phenomena; they are mere appearances to mind.

Introduce and deepen our experience of Empathy, Compassion and Emptiness
