THE SECRET TO AUTHENTIC CHANGE - DAY RETREAT

Meditation Day Retreat with Senior Buddhist teacher James Baskerville 

Saturday 3 September | 10am – 5pm

BOOKING REQUIRED!

A Day Retreat to Create Healthy Habits of Mind ~
 

Real change can only come from within. It is quite normal to seek happiness and solutions to our problems in external conditions, but the truth is this can never lead to the contentment and peace that we all yearn for. Meditation is the secret to accessing the abiding peace and happiness that exists within our own heart. Through meditation we can reset our mind and develop new healthy mental habits that will lead to inner calm, resilience and wisdom. 

With more than 20 years of experience in teaching Kadam Buddhism and in guiding meditation retreats, Buddhist teacher James Baskerville will demonstrate how through meditation each and every one of us can access deep inner peace and allow that experience to pervade our daily life. 


The Teacher

This day retreat will be led by James Baskerville, the Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Centre 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.
