Half-Day Meditation Course
Saturday 14 December | 10.00am – 1.00pm
We all want to fully enjoy our life and be free from problems, but things often seem to happen that are beyond our control. Through understanding the law of karma, or actions and their effects, we can understand the hidden forces in our lives, purify past negativity and create causes that enable us to change our future and create the life we long for.
On this meditation course, Maitreya Centre’s Principal Teacher, James Baskerville, will explore Buddha’s teachings on karma and how we can use this understanding to take control of our life and create a path of future happiness and success.
Everyone is welcome! Suitable for all levels.
