Irish Dharma Celebration –
Inner Healing, Through Developing Inner Peace


Everyone is warmly welcome to attend the Irish Dharma Celebration 2023, which sees people gather from all over Ireland every year. It offers a unique opportunity to enjoy a deeply relaxing and inspiring weekend of practical teachings of modern Buddhism, that are suitable for everyone (as well as guided meditations), with internationally renowned Kadampa Buddhist teacher, Kadam Bridget Heyes.

This year, Kadam Bridget will give uplifting and highly practical teachings on how we can all learn to deeply heal our hearts and minds, by learning how to recognise, reduce and let go of, those habits of mind that undermine our inner peace and happiness, such as anger and attachment as well as fear, anxiety and so forth. We will also learn how to cultivate the qualities that uplift and empower our mind such as love, compassion and wisdom. In this way, we can heal our mind, realise our full potential, and find deep and lasting inner peace and happiness in our lives.

Kadam Bridget will also grant the blessing empowerment of Medicine Buddha. This empowerment is a beautiful and peaceful guided meditation, whereby we make a special connection with, and receive the empowering blessings of Medicine Buddha. This empowers us to deeply heal our mind and body, through this special meditation practise, and become of real benefit to ourselves and others.

The introduction on Friday evening will be given by Kadam Adam, Resident Teacher at Tara KMC, Dublin. The morning guided meditations will be lead by Gen Chitta, Resident Teacher at KMC Northern Ireland.
