Cool and Confident:  Finding Authentic Confidencesunset girl

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.  In this series 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.

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. Everyone is welcome.

Class Format

Every class will begin with a brief introduction, followed by a guided breathing meditation and the Liberating Prayer. After meditation, there will be a short teaching and time for Q&A.

The Wisdom of Letting Go:  Meditations for letting go of negative states of mindWisdom of Letting Go

It is common for people to give us the advice that we “just need to let go,” but it is uncommon for anyone to tell us HOW to let go.  The good news is that letting go of negative and agitated states of mind can definitely be accomplished once we learn how.  In this class series, we’ll take a closer look at meditations and practical teachings that help us to let go of whatever is troubling us.
