“From Ordinary to Extraordinary: How Tantra Changes Everything” with Guest Teacher Gen Tilopa — Sat, Feb 22nd, 10am-5pm

The teachings of Tantra, or Secret Mantra, are the most rare and precious within Buddhism. They show us how to open our minds and overcome the limiting views of ourselves, others, and the world around us – our ordinary views that lead to fear, anxiety, and other painful thoughts. Additionally, Tantra shows how to create an abundance of positive energy and deep wisdom

through special meditation techniques, which bring us quickly to enlightenment. By putting the teachings of Tantra into practice, we can bring a more profound spiritual awareness to our daily activities, creating a purity and bliss that benefit not only ourselves, but also others.  

Everyone is welcome to this day course regardless of experience!
