About this event


Developing Authentic Self-Confidence

March 9 - 30 (no class March 16)

7 PM - 8:30PM

Low self-esteem, fear and anxiety arise from identifying with a “faulty” and “limited self”. But this view of ourself is not coming from wisdom. By developing correct thoughts based on wisdom we will cultivate correct thoughts that give us an a deep an authentic experience of confidence.

Some topics in this series:

1. Where does low self-esteem come from?

2. Freedom from Fear

3. Ignorance – the root of suffering

4. Finding Authentic Self Confidence

Each class is a stand-alone class that is part of a series of classes. You do not need to attend the full series to benefit from these classes. These classes are based on the books How to Transform Your Life and The New Eight Steps to Happiness.

Everyone welcome.

We are located in Guelph at 143 Wyndham St N, Suite 203, where we offer a wide variety of classes, courses, retreats and workshops and Buddhist prayers year round. We also offer drop in classes on meditation and modern Buddhism at various venues in the surrounding area.
