Authentic Self-Love • Workshop

About the Workshop

We all need authentic self-love, but what is it really? We might think it is pampering ourself or trying to boost our ego, but these aren’t the methods to bring about a radical transformation. Real self-love is about recognising our limitless potential — for love, joy, wisdom, happiness — and nurturing that. The more you develop this kind of self-love, the better and more meaningful your life will become. Guaranteed!

At this workshop we will learn Buddha’s practical instructions for overcoming painful ways of relating to ourself and developing a reliable foundation for authentic self-love and confidence. By putting these instructions into practice, and avoiding pitfalls, we can develop lasting happiness and also become more beneficial to others.

Please note: this course will now run on Saturday 2 October.
