Live Streamed Meditation Classes with James
The Psychology of a Peaceful Mind
Teachings on the 11 Virtuous Mental Factors and Guided Meditations with James Baskerville.
(Video catch-up available for 3 days)
Happiness is not something that comes spontaneously. We need to know what are the causes of happiness. Once we understand these causes we are empowered to begin our own inner training. Buddha taught the ’11 virtuous mental factors’, these are states of mind or ways of seeing the world that give rise to peace and clarity both now and in the future.
Each week James will give an explanation of one of these training, give practical advice on how to integrate them into your everyday life and guide a meditation to take these trainings deep into our own mind.
You can attend the whole course or book for individual classes.
