Building self-confidence – Public talk with Kadam Bridget Heyes

“Self-confidence is not a quality that we either have or we don’t have. It is a state of mind that can be cultivated. By applying Buddha’s teachings and meditations on the mind we come to discover that our insecurities are based on mistaken apprehensions of ourselves. As a result, we end up identifying with our limitations that leads to a lack of confidence.” At this Public Talk, Buddhist Teacher Kadam Bridget Heyes will explain how to construct a positive view of ourselves and break free from our limitations. She will describe how we can begin to build a stable and genuine self-confidence that is not dependent upon praise, status, and reputation. In this way, we can start to unlock our limitless potential for pure happiness and discover how to become the positive, confident person we wish to be. Everyone is welcome. Kadam Bridget Heyes is appreciated world wide for her powerful teachings, compassionate heart and deep understanding of Buddha’s wisdom advice. Her teachings are exceptionally clear and she presents profound ideas in ways that are easy to practice and to integrate into daily life. Date: October 30th 2019 Time: 7:30pm Venue: Black Box Belfast Cost: £8
