Finding Peace in a Chaotic World ~
This half day retreat will provide practical instructions and guided meditations which will enable you to develop an enhanced state of mental clarity and inner peace. These clear mind meditations are simple and suitable for all levels and are derived from the Buddhist Mahamudra tradition. Their purpose is to help you explore the mind, with the aim of uncovering your inner potential, leading to lasting peace and happiness.
There will also be a CD available for purchase on the day which will enable you to integrate these powerful practices into your daily life.
The meditation retreat will be guided by James Baskerville, the Resident Teacher at Jampel Kadampa Buddhist Centre.
James has been practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism for over twenty years and has engaged in extensive meditation retreats, including silent retreat. He is especially known for his clarity, humour and inspirational presentation of Buddha’s teachings.
