Growing Self esteem

Saturday, april 10th

10am - 1pm; livestream with replay available

$15; discounts for members


We all want to feel good about ourselves but all too often our confidence and sense of worth seems to rest on achievements, approval, or appearance. Since we cannot avoid criticism, always be successful, or remain young forever, this leaves us vulnerable to low self-esteem.

In this meditation course we will explore how it is possible to be anchored in states of mind that are strong, stable, and deeply peaceful.


Through meditation, we learn to connect to our extraordinary potential rather than our limitations and to transform our difficulties, improve our relationships, and progress on the spiritual path.

In this way we begin to have an authentic self-esteem, based on inner validation, that does not depend upon external conditions.
