THE CONFIDENCE TO CHANGE
Although we all wish to improve ourselves, often we lack confidence in our ability to change, identify strongly with our limitations and become stuck in habitual ways of thinking that prevent us from realising our potential. Within Buddha’s teachings we find deeply encouraging advice on how we can break our negative cycles by relating to our potential and developing the confidence to recognise and overcome what is obstructing us.
During these classes we will discover how to develop confidence in our ability to transform ourselves into a fearless, happy and confident person that is a source of benefit and inspiration to others as well as practical advice on how to make such positive change.
2nd May: Developing Real Confidence by Relating to Our Potential
9th May: Why Change is Possible and Inevitable
16th May: Developing a Fearless Heart
