Buddha Maitreya

Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Maitreya

With Resident Teacher, Kadam John McBretney

Buddha Maitreya is a manifestation of the loving-kindness of all the Buddhas. Receiving the empowerment of Buddha Maitreya directly connects us with our potential to be loving, kind and peaceful. Through our own experience we will understand how keeping a loving heart creates happiness in all of our relationships and is the best protection from problems and pain. Kadam John McBretney will grant this empowerment and will give practical teachings on how we can heal our heart and develop profound love by relying upon Buddha Maitreya.

Living Without Stress & Anxiety

Stress, anxiety, fear and overwhelm are nearly universal experiences of our busy modern lives. These very common states of mind rob us of our ability to enjoy our life, and to experience peace and happiness. Buddha’s timeless teachings offer a simple and yet profound alternative. If we can train our mind to respond to life’s challenges with a peaceful, positive attitude, all our ordinary problems and difficulties will fall away, and we will discover our true nature, which is infinitely calm, happy and stable. In this way we can learn to face life with clarity, inner strength, and profound peace. Everyone is welcome.
