Upcoming Classes & Dates

Self Confidence: November 13, 20, 27; December 4, 11

Self-confidence is not a quality that we either have or we don’t have. In fact, it is a state of mind
that can be cultivated. By applying Buddha’s teachings on the mind we come to discover that our
insecurities are based on mistaken apprehensions of ourselves. As a result, we end up identifying
with our limitations.

In this series, through inspiring talks and powerful guided meditations, we will learn how to
experience the pure and limitless nature of our mind. Through this joyful experience we naturally
let go of our inhibiting insecurities and instead identify with our potential. This authentic
self-confidence naturally empowers us in all our activities. We will explore how to integrate
this self-confidence into our life and in particular how to use it to bring about the deeper
changes that we long for. In this way we begin to be the confident, joyful, loving person we
truly wish to be.

Class Format

Each class begins with guided breathing meditation, to help settle the mind, let go of distractions and cultivate inner peace. Kadampa teacher Kelsang Lachpa will then give a practical teaching based on the topic of the class series and explain how we can integrate Buddha’s timeless wisdom into our busy daily lives. The class concludes with a guided meditation, designed to help us take the teaching to heart in such a way that we are confident in beginning to practice it on our own.

Afterwards there is opportunity for questions and discussion, and a chance to talk to the teacher and other students informally.
