Self-confidence is an essential ingredient if we are to accomplish our goals. Both in daily life and especially in our spiritual life, lacking confidence can create obstacles to our progress. In Buddha’s teachings we find a method to develop self-confidence that does not depend on comparing our self to others. We can learn to love and appreciate our self and others simultaneously. When we are feeling confident we joyfully apply effort to accomplish our goals and nothing feels unattainable, even enlightenment.
During this workshop, learn how to develop authentic self-confidence through training in meditation and identifying with our limitless potential for change and development. The teachings given will be based on several verses from the ancient Buddhist poem, Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, by Indian meditator, Shantideva, which reveals the extraordinary confidence of someone who has gained control over their mind.
“I will conquer all obstacles,
And none shall conquer me.
Thus I, who will become a Conqueror,
Will practice with self-confidence.” –Shantideva

Location ~ Greeley
Heruka Buddhist Center in Greeley
710 Eleventh Ave, Room L30
Greeley, CO 80631
This is the old Greeley high school. It is next to the UCCC, Rec. Center, and Lincoln Park Library.
You may park in front or back. Or, there is a bus stop about 20' from the door on Eleventh Avenue at Eight St.
The easiest way to find room L30 is to enter the lower-level west doors on Eleventh Avenue, facing the Santiago's restaurant. If, instead, you go in the main doors, you will need to take the stairs or the elevator down.
NOTE: Even if you take the elevator, there are still 6 steps to go down.
