Body Image Workshop

Appreciating our body & developing resilient self-esteem

Saturday, June 18, 2022  |  2-4pm

In-person & Online

Our ways of seeing our body can easily give rise to unhappiness, insecurity and a lack of self-esteem. Often our feelings of self worth are tied to our physical appearance, leading to discontent, jealousy, self-loathing or vanity.

In this workshop, we will explore Buddha’s teachings on the hidden significance of our body and how we can relate to our body in much happier ways.

We will also learn a special Buddhist meditation that will transform our relationship with our body from that of dissatisfaction, low self-esteem, and insecurity to one of appreciation and acceptance. 

Everyone is welcome. The workshop will include two guided meditations, a talk and time for discussion and Q & A.




Please note that our live-streamed (online) fees are slightly higher to offset the added live-stream technology and utility costs. We are a non-profit registered 501(c)3 organization; all our fees go to sustaining our ability to provide Kadampa Buddhist study programs and retreats.
