During Sessions:

If you feel your child can attend the empowerment and teachings without disturbing others, they are welcome to sit with you in the designated area in the meditation hall.

We are sorry we cannot provide a live video link in a children's room for this celebration.  However you can go sit with you child or children in the Cafe area until the session is over.

Great!  You will find a place on the booking form to register your preferences for volunteering.  We will get that information to our Volunteer Coordinator so you can get contacted by a matching area of need.
If you have questions about volunteering after you arrive, please go to the Registration Desk.


During the sessions we will be using the following prayer booklets:

    • Prayers for Meditation
    • Wishfulfilling Jewel
    • The Yoga of Buddha Maitreya
    • Request to the Holy Spiritual Guide

Please feel free to bring your own copies.  We have a limited amount to lend and prayer booklets are also available to purchase in the shop.

If you cancel before noon on the Friday the Celebration starts, we will refund 75% of your payment for Celebration fees (plus your payment for Audio recordings, if any).

Any non-refunded fees arising from cancellations go to the International Temples Project Fund.

We look forward to seeing you at the Celebration!  Please contact our registration team at info@wcdharmacelebration.org  if you have remaining un-answered questions.
