Live Streamed Meditation Classes with James


For the Benefit of All

HOW TO LIVE THE BODHISATTVA’S WAY OF LIFE – 7 WEEK COURSE

The link will be available to view for 48h

Woken up to just how fragile our ‘normal’ is and humbled by how selfless and kind our fellow human beings can be it is inevitable that we reflect on the potential of our own life.

What is ‘my’ life well spent? What is ‘my’ potential for personal greatness?

In the renowned text ‘The Bodhisattva’s Way of Life’ (Bodhsattvacharyavatara) the great enlightened Buddhist master Shantideva answers these questions. He provides a practical guide to life for those who are dedicated to actualise their potential and be the best person they can be for the benefit of others.

In this seven week course James will give a short practical talk and guided meditation on how to turn your life into the life of a Bodhisattva – one destined for enlightenment, as well as powerful insights taught by Buddha to enable us to transform fear, open our hearts and deepen our connection to others. Each class is self-contained.
