Silencing the Inner Critic

Sun 23 Oct | 10am-1pm

In-Person & Online Workshop

Build a pure self confidence that is untroubled by unhealthy self criticism.

Workshop Description

We all have an unhelpful habit of being self critical that not only disturbs our mental peace but actually holds us back from being the person we want to be. Far from being useful, our inner critic can prevent us from living the life we really want to live.

Learn to recognise this inner critic as it operates in your life and relationships, and discover through meditation how to let go of this painful habit.

Through reflecting with wisdom you can skillfully develop the inner qualities that build true self confidence and enable you to realise your full potential.

At this morning workshop, Resident Teacher and Buddhist nun Gen Kelsang Lhachog will guide us in practical and effective meditations and ways of thinking – drawn from Buddha’s teachings – that enable us to become happier, more content and comfortable in our life.

You'll come away knowing how to:

  • identify unhealthy self-talk
  • encourage yourself and stay inspired
  • connect with your pure potential
  • overcome self-doubts and discouragement
  • enjoy all your relationships without friction or worry

Everybody is welcome to attend this workshop, regardless of experience. You will receive inspiration and information on how to enjoy an empowering confidence that allows us to accept ourself wholeheartedly. .

In two sessions (both one and a quarter hours long) with a morning tea break, you’ll receive a teaching on Buddha’s wisdom applied to daily life, and be guided through a series of meditations to relax and strengthen your mind. You’ll have the opportunity to ask all your questions on meditation and living with wisdom to an experienced teacher.

The Teacher

Gen Kelsang Lhachog, the Resident Teacher at KMC Sydney will teach this workshop. With 25 years’ experience in meditation, Gen Lhachog explains Buddha’s teachings with sincerity and kindness, in a way that is clear and easy to apply to our daily life.
