How to live your Life with Purpose & Vitality

Meditation Day Retreat

Saturday 4 April | 10.00am – 3.30pm

Meditation Day Retreat with Maitreya Centre’s Principal Teacher, James Baskerville

Taught by James Baskerville

How to live your Life with Purpose & Vitality


In general in our society we are not encouraged to think much about our own mortality or indeed some of the bigger subjects like the meaning of own life. The truth is by not courageously embracing how brief and fragile our life truly is we deny ourself the opportunity to explore its real meaning and purpose. The age old and wise tradition of meditation on death and impermanence leads to genuine sense of joy and vitality that is a potential in all of us and it helps us to clarify what really matters in our life. 


In this day retreat our resident teacher James will give some introduction and guide a series of meditations suitable for everyone whether beginners or more experienced meditators. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call the centre and we can answer any of your queries.
