The Path to Self-Acceptance
A Dharma talk with Ven. Thubten Chodron
January 10, 9 am Pacific Time, 8 pm Turkish time
Merve Karakus Mindfulness Teacher Training, Istanbul, Turkey
Modern media often tells us: You’re just not good enough. Your body isn’t the right shape, your clothes don’t fit right, you’re in the wrong career, your car is so last year. How do we cultivate a sense of self-acceptance in the face of these messages?
Join American Buddhist nun Venerable Thubten Chodron as she shares tips on how to cultivate genuine self-confidence by befriending ourselves and understanding the nature of our human potential. With simultaneous translation into Turkish.
