Creating the Confidence to Change
We all want to make changes in our life. We want to be less insecure, less fearful, less angry, less depressed, etc. And we want to be more confident, courageous, happy, creative and so forth. But we find it difficult to make these changes and to bring about these new versions of ourself that we long for.
The practice of meditation, combined with Buddha’s insights on the psychology of transformation, will enable us to release our self-limiting views and give us the confidence and skill to make these life-enhancing changes. Through talks, guided meditations, and answers to your questions, senior teachers from our Centre will help us to experience the methods through which we can joyfully bring about real changes swiftly and effectively.
Suitable for both beginners and more experienced practitioners alike.
Drop-in Classes. Join at any time.
Everyone is welcome to learn more about meditation and positive thinking.
