About the MADC

The Mid-Atlantic Dharma Celebration is a very special annual event that connects practitioners around the Mid-Atlantic region. This incredible weekend of practical teachings, powerful meditations, and energizing empowerment is an event not to be missed. If you are new to Buddhism, the Celebration weekend provides a perfect opportunity to gain a deeper understanding and experience of Buddha’s teachings. Everyone is welcome.

At this year’s Mid-Atlantic Dharma Celebration, Kadam Morten will give the Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Vajrapani and teachings on overcoming obstacles. Vajrapani is the Buddha of spiritual power, although his nature is love, his aspect is fierce to emphasize his ability to empower us to abandon our delusions and negativity. The empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we make a direct connection with this sublime Buddha, and receive powerful blessings.
