Meditation classes in La Cañada

Friday 12:00pm - 1:00pm

1930 Foothill Blvd. Room 4, La Cañada, CA

Overcoming Perfectionism, Self-Criticism and Discouragement

We sometimes set up an all-or-nothing approach to success, feeling that if we’re not able to do something perfectly then we’re a failure. Through Buddhist psychology, we can learn practical methods that will help us accept who and where we are, and make spiritual progress towards becoming the person we wish to be.

April 5 Perfectionism: Expectations and Pride
April 12 Self-Criticism: Patience and Potential
April 19 Discouragement: Reality and Rejoicing
April 26 The Healing Practice of Taking
May 3 The Big Picture: Review Q&A
