His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje made his first, historic visit to the UK between the 17th and 29th May 2017. Whilst here His Holiness attended 15 official engagements, traversed 9 counties, was received by HRH The Prince of Wales at Highgrove House & Gardens and was invited to join Lord Rowen Williams ‘Inspire Dialogue’ at Cambridge University. His Holiness taught to over 4,500 people across 2 days of public teachings in London, launched his new book ‘Interconnected: Embracing Life in our Global Society’, offered a long Life empowerment to the Himalayan communities in Aldershot, visited the historic sites of Avebury circle & Stonehenge and even helped to steer a boat down the River Thames! We all feel incredibly blessed and we sincerely hope that everyone feels blessed, encouraged and uplifted by the visit.
It is our wish to invite His Holiness Karmapa to return to the UK so with all of your additional thoughts and prayers we hope to make this dream a reality. For information about future visits please sign up here: LINK TO SIGN UP
