Half-Day Meditation Course

Saturday 16 November | 10.00am – 1.00pm

At any one time in our life there is always going to be something that is not quite right, a difficulty that causes us worry and stops us being truly at ease. Being ‘up in our head’ over-analysing these situations rarely leads to beneficial solutions and can often lead to further doubt and confusion.
Meditation is a way of connecting to a deeper place in our mind, one of inner stillness free from the turbulence of incessant and disturbing thoughts. From this heart-centred experience of inner peace we can find inspiration and wisdom that can be our inner guide to navigate through life’s challenges.
On this half day workshop Maitreya Buddhist Centre’s Principal Teacher, James Baskerville, will lead meditations and present new methods of problem-solving to replace the unhelpful mental habits of worry, anxiety and avoidance.

The Teacher

This half-day course will be guided by James Baskerville, Principal Teacher at Maitreya Kadampa Buddhist Centre.

James has been practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism for over twenty years and has engaged in extensive meditation retreats, including silent retreat. He is especially known for his clarity, humour and inspirational presentation of Buddha’s teachings.
