An empowerment is a blessing ceremony where we receive positivity, inspiration and a special connection to an enlightened being. Prior to the empowerment the teacher will spend a week in silent retreat developing a very peaceful and positive mind. When the teacher grants the empowerment they share the special positivity from their retreat to those present.

Following the empowerment there will be retreat sessions to enable us to gain familiarity with the practice.
