A Transformative Weekend retreat with KMC Kent’s Principal Teacher James Baskerville

BOOKING REQUIRED!

A Weekend Retreat to Create Healthy Habits of Mind ~
 
The new year is a symbol of possibility. We wish to change and for our lives to go in a better direction but for this to happen, we need to connect with the potential that exists within our minds. 

The profound tools of transformation within Buddhist meditation gives us the ability to become the person we wish to be: more dynamic, confident, kinder, more loving, peaceful, and happier. 

In this weekend retreat, James will explore how we can use Buddhist meditation to connect to profound dimensions within our mind and harness our ability to change at a deep level. Through applying these timeless methods, we will be able to let go of our self-limiting views, and develop the confidence to bring about the new version of ourself  that we have always longed for.

 Sat 14 Jan –  Letting Go of the Limiting Past 

Sun 15 Jan – Meditations for a Happy, Confident Future
