With Resident Teacher, Kadam Mick Marcon
Medicine Buddha is the embodiment of the healing power of all enlightened beings. His function is to liberate living beings from outer and inner sickness. On this very special weekend, Kadam Mick Marcon will grant the Empowerment of Medicine Buddha and give commentary to the Medicine Buddha Sadhana practice. The empowerment is like a beautiful guided meditation through which we receive the powerful blessings of this Buddha. By relying upon Medicine Buddha and engaging in his practice we will gain the power to free our self and others from the causes of inner and outer sickness and accomplish the ultimate goal of human life, full enlightenment.
In addition to granting the empowerment of Medicine Buddha, Kadam Mick will also guide a day retreat on How to Become Medicine Buddha.
Everyone is welcome, no previous experience is required.
