Meditation workshop –
Living our best life now

Talks & guided meditations
January, Sat 27th | 10:00 to 13:30 | with Kadam Adam | at Tara Centre, Rathgar

At this time of the year we often look to the future and the positive changes we would like to make in our lives. We may have tried to change and improve many times before but end up reverting to our old unhelpful habits and end up feeling a little stuck in life.

In this workshop we will explore the views and perceptions that undermine our ability to make the lasting changes we wish for. We will discover through our own experience that there are no faults or limitations in our mind that we cannot learn to let go of.

In this way we will develop a deep confidence in our ability to make the changes we wish for in our lives. We will learn how to live our best life now, becoming the person we want to be and have the happy, fulfilling life we wish for.

Meditation workshop –
Healing the past, creating the future

Talks & guided meditations
April, Sat 7th | 10:00 to 13:30 | with Kadam Adam | at Tara Centre, Rathgar

Discover how to heal the past and create the future you want through understanding the law of karma. We all want to feel in control of the destiny of our own life. Everyone simply wants to be free from problems & suffering and feel confident that we are creating the happy, fulfilling life we wish for. Many of our fears and anxieties come from not feeling we have this control over the destiny of our lives.

In this workshop Kadam Adam will explain how understanding and living in accordance with the natural law of karma empowers anyone to change this. We will discover how we can develop and maintain the confidence and peace of mind that comes from feeling in control of the destiny of our life. We will explore how if we can imagine the life we want, we can create it. If we create the inner causes or karma, for the happy & fulfilling life we wish for, that is exactly what we will experience, in time.

In particular we will learn proven meditations & practises known as ‘purification practise’. This practice enables anyone to purify – or heal – the karma that currently gives rise to our problems & suffering. This karma, which is the legacy of our past negativity, is not fixed and we can all become free from it. We will discover as we purify our karma, we heal our life. In this way we can all become the creators of our own reality. We can create a life filled with inner peace, happiness & freedom, from the inside-out.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and those with more experience of meditation. It will include talks, guided meditations and time for Q&A.

Special event –
Green Tara Empowerment

April, Sat 28th | 10:00 to 15:00 | with Kadam Adam | at Tara Centre, Rathgar

At this time, the world really needs more love, compassion and wisdom. In the example of the fully enlightened Buddha, Green Tara, we find a vision of authentic hope of peace and fearlessness for ourselves, and our world. She is the embodiment of the fully awakened qualities of love, compassion and wisdom. Her enlightened example reflects everyone’s highest potential, to fully realize these qualities within themselves, and find a deep and lasting inner peace and happiness.

The empowerment is a deeply peaceful guided meditation through which we connect to a Buddha’s inspiration. By receiving the empowerment of Buddha Tara – the Buddha of swift protection and fearless wisdom – we have the opportunity to make this connection. In this way we can begin the journey of fully actualizing our own spiritual potential for profound love, compassion and wisdom, as well as find lasting inner peace and happiness.

Kadam Adam will guide the empowerment in the morning and then give teachings on the special meditation practice of Green Tara in the afternoon. Through engaging in this practise we will discover the perfect method to access and fully actualize our highest potential of enlightenment.

Meditation workshop –
Introduction to Tantra

Talks & guided meditations
May, Sat 12th | 10:00 to 13:30 | with Kadam Adam | at Tara Centre, Rathgar

Nowadays, Tantra is very popular. However, there is a lot of misunderstanding about the real meaning of this inspiring and highly practical inner training. In this workshop, we will discover how the basis for training in Tantra is realizing that everyone has an extraordinary potential to live a life of great freedom and joy. In Tantric meditation, we find the perfect methods to access and fully actualise this inner potential.

Kadam Adam will explain how, by learning to experience increasingly subtle and deeply peaceful levels of mind in meditation, we gain clear insight into the nature and potential of our mind, and the nature of reality. Through these insights we come to understand how we, and others, have the freedom to change, to become the truly loving, compassionate and wise person we would wish to be. Training in Tantra empowers us to become that person, and realise our highest potential.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and those with more experience of meditation. It will include talks, guided meditations and time for Q&A.
