meditator on busy city street
In this talk and meditation, international guest teacher Kadam Lucy James will show practical and inspiring methods for letting go of attitudes about ourself that limit us, weigh us down, and prevent us from living to our full potential. There is nothing fixed about us — through changing our thoughts we can become who we want to be. By learning to accept ourselves happily within an understanding of our enormous capacity for freedom and growth, we will begin to awaken a source of deep peace and wisdom from within.

This special talk is suitable for everyone, whether you are new to meditation and modern Buddhism, or already have some previous experience.
