Self Confidence
Half Day Course

Sun 4 Feb | 10am-1:00pm

With self confidence we can enthusiastically welcome life’s challenges.

About the Course

With confidence we can enthusiastically welcome life’s challenges – like an accomplished surfer eagerly meeting a large and powerful wave. With the certain knowledge of thriving in all situations, we can be fearless and joyful in whatever circumstances we find ourselves.

However, when we lose our confidence, even small difficulties can feel overwhelming and we find ourselves shying away from the opportunities that life presents for fear of failing to live up to our own or others’ expectations.

Since self-confidence is so important in every area of our life – and especially in meditation on the spiritual path – Buddha taught many techniques for cultivating a strong and finally unshakeable inner confidence. Once we can fully accept and be at peace with ourself there is nothing that can get between us and the happy life we deserve.

Workshop Format

Over two sessions (both one and a quarter hours long), you’ll learn how to develop strong and unshakeable self confidence. You’ll have the opportunity to have your questions answered by a Buddhist monk and teacher with many years of meditation experience. A delicious home-made morning tea will be served in the break to give you time to relax, absorb the teachings and get to know each other. Everyone is welcome.
