Lacking self-esteem is something that we all experience at one time or another. If we wish to develop stable self-esteem it cannot be based upon superficial things like reputation, external success, status, or praise from others. Although these things may temporarily lift us up and make us feel better about ourselves, it won’t last.

On this half day course we will look at how we can use Buddhist meditation to develop authentic and stable self-esteem based on developing our inner good qualities.

These half day courses are suitable for everyone, you do not need to be Buddhist to attend.
