Letting Go of Self-Criticism and Guilt
Burnley Kadampa Buddhist Centre, Burnley
Saturday 22 Jun, 10am – 1pm
We are often our own harshest judge, developing high expectations of ourselves and then beating ourselves up when we don’t reach them. Free yourselves from guilt, anger, jealousy and resentment and move forward with confidence and optimism for the future.
Self-criticism and guilt don’t help us to become a better or more effective person, in fact, they tend to hold us back and keep us stuck in unhelpful habits. Furthermore, they destroy our inner peace and self-confidence and can even lead to depression and other self-destructive habits.
In this half-day workshop we will engage in simple and effective guided meditations for overcoming feelings of self-criticism and guilt. We will explore how we can develop comfortable and realistic expectations of ourselves, whilst steadily working to grow and improve.
You may also be interested in the afternoon course, True Confidence and Self Esteem. There is a discounted price for people attending both events. The cost of the morning workshop is £12.50 (GP Centre Card £5) or combine it with the afternoon half day course, True Confidence and Self Esteem, for £18.
Refreshments are available in our World Peace Cafe during the workshop. Why not also stay for homemade soup afterwards?
This course will be taught by Gen Kelsang Päljin the Resident Teacher of Burnley Kadampa Buddhist Centre and of Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley. He is a Buddhist monk with over 18 years’ experience of practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism.
