Friday March 27, 7:00-8:00 pm

In the words of ZaChoeje Rinpoche: "We all have healing, loving, wisdom, and compassion aspects. Each aspect is shown as a deity. These deities are our own aspects." Through the Medicine Buddha practice we invoke our own healing power and increase our self confidence so that we can bring healing to ourselves and others.

Everybody is welcome to attend this guided meditation.
