The Secret to Truly Letting Go - 4 week course

~ The View of the Transitory Collection ~

Online Talks and Guided Meditations with KMC Kent Resident Teacher James Baskerville

(Video Catch-up available for 7 days)

In the continuation of this series we will take a deep dive into ‘me, myself and I’. The thought ‘I’ is so close and so familiar that we rarely question it, yet Buddha taught this basic misconception of ourself is the root of all unhappiness and the source of all problems.

In this four part series we will look deeply into what we are actually relating to when we think I, me and mine. We will look at the subtle yet enormous mistake we are making and how this mistake causes us so much pain.

The purpose of these classes is to increase our own practical wisdom in order to become happier, stronger individuals with the capacity to truly be of benefit to other.

The instructions and practices of this series will be taken from ‘How to Understand the Mind’ by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
