Weekend Retreat

Sat 15 – Sun 16 February 2020

The True Path of Happiness

Weekend Retreat with Jampel Centre’s Resident Teacher James Baskerville

Join us for either one or both days of retreat in which you will be guided in traditional meditation on loving kindness by our resident teacher James.

Cultivating our own feeling of gratitude, connectedness and empathy not only leads to a precious experience of genuine inner peace, it also leads to healthier relationships and more confidence in our day to day life.

Why not celebrate Valentine’s weekend by doing something a little different? Relax in this peaceful setting of Wootton, learn to connect with your heart, and spend time with like minded people all working together to develop the qualities that really matter.

This weekend retreat is suitable for everyone: couples, singles and broken-hearted.


Day 1 – Sat 15 Feb | 10am – 4.30pm

Day 2 – Sun 16 Feb | 10am – 4.30pm

The Teacher

This weekend retreat will be led 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.
