In this special weekend event, Gen Rigpa, will give grant Vajrapani empowerment and give teachings on how to rely upon him to heal ourself and others; in particular, how to use the powerful, ancient practice of the Migstema Prayer as a healing tool.

The empowerment is a beautiful and inspiring guided meditation and ritual in which we are introduced to Buddha Vajrapani, from whom we then receive many blessings, adding great power to our own practice as well as sowing seeds for our future attainment of enlightenment.
