Our mind is our greatest healer
Discover how to actualize your potential to overcome all mental pain, sorrow, loss, physical suffering, illness, and disease through one of the most renowned ancient meditations taught by Buddha, known as “taking and giving.”
Join us for this day meditation event with senior Buddhist teacher James Baskerville with over 20 years’ experience, who will introduce us to the practice of transforming the simple act of breathing into a powerful healing practice that causes mental peace and happiness, improves concentration, enhances our love, compassion, and wisdom, and brings great meaning to our life.
Each session will consist of a talk and guided meditation plus time for Q&A.
This meditation retreat will be led by James Baskerville, the Resident Teacher at KMC Kent.
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.
