Topic: How to Let Go of Insecurity

Many people think ‘I am an insecure person’ and everybody feels insecure from time to time. This insecurity undermines our happiness, our ability to be effective, and prevents us from being the confident, relaxed and beneficial person we all long to be.

Although we may have the habit of identifying ourselves as insecure, no one is actually insecure by nature. In this special class series, we will explain how we can begin to connect to the underlying happiness and confidence that is our actual nature, and she will guide a meditation taking us into the experience of this peaceful and relaxed mind. It is this experience that will enable us to begin to let go of our mistaken insecurity and eventually be free of it altogether.

Everyone is welcome.


Here our meditation teacher, Lekso.
