The Power of Prayer

A half day meditation workshop exploring the power of prayer – in-person or online

Everyone can pray! Faith isn’t something we have or don’t have – it can be developed by anyone. Prayer is incredibly effective for transforming our state of mind. It turns our attention to something positive, holy and uplifting, and has the power to shift us out of our worry and frenzied concerns.

In these uncertain times we want more than ever to be able to take refuge in something that can really benefit. The essence of Buddhist prayer is turning our mind with faith to holy objects of refuge, and making requests to them to help us become free from suffering. So in essence – turning fear into faith and replacing worry with prayer.

Prayers strengthen our connection to holy beings, and the stronger that connection the better able we are to face adversity with wisdom, courage and strength. 

Prayer helps us generate powerful, virtuous energy in our mind; turning our mind to the holy with faith makes our mind clean and pure; and they connect us to holy beings so that we receive inspiring energy and blessings into our mind.

With guided meditations on ‘The Liberating Prayer’.
