About the Talk:

The Buddhist Method to Finding Real Confidence

The evening starts with a talk on Buddha's inspiring advice for approaching 2024 with a positive and uplifting outlook, with our Resident Teacher Kadam Trina Gunther. 

We all wish for greater confidence, in ourselves and our life. We want to know exactly how we can make ourselves happy, make others happy, and have a really good year. We want to know that we can handle any difficulties that might arise over the year ahead, knowing that whatever happens we can make the most of it and really grow and flourish in 2024.

How can we know such things? Through relying on Buddha's profound wisdom we can gain this special confidence, with which we can courageously and optimistically move forward in our life.

In this talk Kadam Trina will explain how each of us can gain this confidence through Buddha's wisdom, and in particular using the Buddhist practice of "going for refuge." Refuge means establishing special protection within our own mind from suffering, like an inner spiritual armor for the mind. Learn how to establish this in your mind, so that you can go into 2024 with great confidence!
