THE CONFIDENCE TO CHANGE

£32 FOR 4-WEEK SERIES OR £10 PER CLASS DROP-IN (NO NEED TO BOOK IN ADVANCE)

TUESDAYS 7 – 8.30PM WITH GEN KELSANG GOMCHEN

Although we all wish to improve our selves, 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 realizing 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 develop the confidence to recognize and overcome what is obstructing us.

During this 4-week series of classes we will learn 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.

The teachings given will be based on several verses from the ancient Buddhist poem, 'Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life', by the Indian meditator, Shantideva. This poem reveals the extraordinary confidence of someone who has gained control over their own mind and is as relevant today as it was when first composed.

Tuesday 5 February – Developing Real Confidence by Relating to Our Potential

Tuesday 12 February – Why change is Possible and Inevitable

Tuesday 19 February – Developing a Fearless Heart

Tuesday 26 February – Becoming a Source of Inspiration for Others Through a Good Heart

Do I need to bring anything or wear anything special?
No. All sessions will take place on chairs but there are optional cushions if you prefer to sit cross-legged. You don’t need to bring anything else with you, but some people like to take notes during the session, so feel free to bring a paper and pen.
