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.
May 3 The Big Picture: Review Q&A
NEW COURSE Starts May 17 – Mindfulness: Fundamentals of Buddhist Meditation
In the fast pace of our work and personal lives, our attention is easily scattered and our mind cluttered with endless distraction. Training in mindfulness gives us the power to overcome disturbing thoughts and to stay focused on what brings peace of mind. These teachings give us a chance to truly experience peace of mind and live a meaningful life by restoring our focus on what’s important.
