Letting Go of Self-Criticism and Guilt
Buddha Land Kadampa Buddhist Centre, Keighley
Saturday 8 Jun, 2pm – 5pm
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.
This course is suitable for everyone from complete beginners to experienced meditators.
The cost of the workshop is £12.50 (GP Centre Card £5).
Refreshments are available in our World Peace Cafe during the workshop. Why not also come for lunch before the workshop?
This course will be are taught by Kelsang Drama, a student of the Foundation Programme at Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley.
