Finding freedom from insecurity and low self-esteem.
Do you ever feel overly self-critical? It’s an easy thing to do when examining the experiences of our life, especially the ones that go wrong, to see our self as the common denominator and conclude that we are the actual problem. Worse still we might be really trying, and yet, we’re consumed by insecurity and fear of failure so there is little opportunity for things to go well. So we become discouraged, anxious and exhausted.
Then we might decide that we must be a ‘sub-standard human’ trying to achieve the impossible – a happy and meaningful life! It feels so sad. Our self-worth hits rock bottom and we become acutely attuned to anything we might do wrong and we fall into self-loathing or depression…
Fortunately this dark world we may have come to inhabit is not the truth, but rather a compelling but mistaken belief created by using our mind unskillfully.
In this meditation workshop Buddhist monk, Gen Jampel will introduce ways of relating to our self, others and the world which bring us back to reality from our unpleasant hallucination. Reality turns out to be an amazing, healing experience where we can reconnect with our actual potential and genuine hope and confidence returns.
Come and enjoy a day of learning to silence your inner critic and ignite your potential.
As the Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Centre Durban, Gen Jampel takes joy in helping us discover the innate potential for freedom and peace we carry in our hearts – even in difficult times. An ordained Buddhist monk, he has been practicing Kadampa Buddhism for many years and elucidates the life-changing wisdom of meditation through the lens of everyday life. Loved for his uplifting example and playful humour, he is a relatable teacher and reliable friend to the community.
