15 March 2019



It was a magical weekend when over 200 people from Jacksonville, Orlando, Safety Harbor, Tampa, Sarasota, Ft Myers, Miami, and Ft Lauderdale gathered at KMC Florida in Sarasota to participate in the Florida Dharma Celebration 2019 with Kadam Morten Clausen the Eastern US National Spiritual Director.

The theme this year was ‘A Beautiful Vision of Who We Can Be: Empowering our Spiritual Life through the Practice of Tantra with the Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Vajrapani.’

Kadam Morten gave teachings on the practice known as ‘correct imagination’, the method for actualizing our extraordinary potential swiftly as revealed by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. Through this, we explored the practice of Tantra and how we can use it to empower our spiritual life - in particular how Tantra teaches us how everything in our life, our relationships, jobs, and enjoyments can be integrated into a powerful and joyful process of inner development, drawing us ever closer to actualizing our true nature.

KMC Florida Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Chodor gave the Friday Night Introduction to start off the festivities and KMC Ft Lauderdale Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Norbu led the morning meditations preparing us for the empowerment and teachings.

The Florida weather was perfect for enjoying quiet time, a stroll in the gardens, and quality time with fellow sangha.

As always, these inspiring and powerful weekends cannot happen without the care, support and help of everyone who joined us. Thank you for making this weekend extra special!
