The Power of Loving Kindness
Meditation Day Retreat
Saturday 8 Feb | 10.00am – 3.00pm
Meditation Day Retreat with Maitreya Centre’s Principal Teacher, James Baskerville
Join us for a short day of retreat in which you will be guided in traditional meditation on loving kindness.
Cultivating our own feeling of gratitude, connectedness and empathy not only leads to a precious experience of genuine inner peace it also leads to healthier relationships and more confidence in our day to day life.
Why not spend the day with us at Maitreya Centre learning to connect with your heart, and spend time with like-minded people all working together to develop the qualities that really matter.
The day retreat 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.
