DEVELOPING EMOTIONAL BALANCE & STRENGTH
Online Half Day Meditation Course
Saturday 19 June | 10.00am – 1.00pm
Online Meditation Course with KMC Kent Resident Teacher, James Baskerville
(Video catch-up available for 7 days)
For all of us life is unpredictable and will inevitably present us with many challenges. Changing circumstances can so easily knock us of course, drag us down and sap our energy and positive intentions.
To address this, Buddha taught about the inner obstacles of the eight worldly concerns and explained how we can recognise and overcome them.
In this half day course James will introduce the eight worldly concerns and give practical advice on how we can use meditation and mindfulness to overcome them to develop authentic inner peace, strength and resilience.
If this sounds intriguing to you, we encourage you to join us for this workshop.
Suitable for Everybody.
