What will you learn on this course?

Building Self-confidence

On this day course we will see how Buddhist wisdom offers us a different way of viewing ourself, relating to the extraordinary potential we all have rather than our limitations.

Building Self-confidence

Developing this inner confidence will naturally lead us to improve our good qualities and develop positive, happy states of mind, as well as enabling us to be a positive influence on those around us.

Building Self-confidence

These methods can be easily integrated into our busy, daily routine using the step-by-step meditation and mindfulness methods described in this course. Everyone is welcome, regardless of background or belief.
