Letting Go of Perfect – Tuesdays 7.30-8.45pm  At Kadampa Meditation Centre Lancaster, 93 Kings Street, Lancaster, LA1 1RH

Tuesday 28 June & 5 July

Class fee: £7 per class, free for KMC Lancaster members

With modern life, especially within the world of media platforms, we can often feel under pressure to ‘get it right’, to be seen as successful, or to be ‘living the life’.  Deep down we know these are unrealistic expectations, but nevertheless we can get caught up with them and feel dissatisfied or that we’re not good enough.

These thoughts can genuinely undermine our confidence and self esteem. What we need amidst our challenging world is the encouragement to know we can be happy and content just as we are and let go of our craving for perfection.

This course will help us understand how to let go of our self-critical thought patterns, nourish positive attitudes, and redirect our energies to being content, peaceful and most importantly happy with who we are.

With Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Dao

The classes are self-contained so you can attend any week. Each class consists of two guided meditations and a Buddhist mindfulness teaching to help us solve our daily problems and find happiness. Beginners welcome.
