Public Talk: Developing Confidence

Saturday, November 18
10:30am – 12pm
with Buddhist Teacher, Mark Gould
at KMC South Carolina (2999 Sunset Blvd., Suite 101, W. Columbia, SC 29169)
$10 or $5 students/seniors (Free for Monthly Members)

Self-confidence is not a quality that we either have or we don’t have. In fact, it is a state of mind that can be cultivated. By applying Buddha’s teachings on the mind we come to discover that our insecurities are based on mistaken apprehensions of ourselves. As a result, we end up identifying with our limitations.

In this talk, we will learn how to experience the pure and limitless nature of our mind. Through this joyful experience we naturally let go of our inhibiting insecurities and instead identify with our potential. This authentic self-confidence naturally empowers us in all our activities. We will explore how to integrate this self-confidence into our life and in particular how to use it to bring about the deeper changes that we long for. In this way we begin to be the confident, joyful, loving person we truly wish to be.
