The Scottish Dharma Celebration is an annual opportunity for people throughout Scotland to gather together with spiritual friends to receive inspiration and teachings; enjoying a weekend which leaves people feeling relaxed and spiritually re-energised.

During this special weekend, Kadam Bridget will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni and give teachings on how to integrate Buddha’s teachings, Kadam Dharma, into daily life. Through this we can learn to make all our experiences meaningful and create the causes for lasting inner peace and happiness.

An empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation through which we can make a deep connection with Buddha and receive his powerful blessings to heal our mind and awaken our spiritual potential.
