Details

Imagine how relaxing would it be if you were authentically confident, if you knew how to deal with inevitable challenges without feeling overwhelmed or discouraged! Developing and strengthening the inner power of confidence protects your mind from discouragement and results in increasing peace and happiness - not despite the challenges you face, but because of them. 

“I will conquer all obstacles and none shall conquer me. Thus I, who will become a Conqueror, will practice with self-confidence," said Shantideva, the 8th Century great Indian meditation master. Through guided meditations and practical insights, we'll explore how to get there and apply it in our daily life.

The special guest teacher for this event is Gen Kelsang Choma, an ordained Buddhist nun and Resident Teacher of KMC San Francisco. With over 30 years' experience, she brings a wealth of spiritual joy, insight, practicality, and empathy to her teachings and meditations. No previous experience is necessary, and absolutely everyone is invited to attend.

* This event will also be available to viewed at our Oak Park location. If you have registered for the online event please consider yourself invited to enjoy the program (via video link) with us in our meditation room. All are welcome!
