Saturday Morning Workshop: Why Are We So Hard on Ourselves?


with Jil Amadio
November 2 / 10:00 AM - November 2 / 12:00 PM

Why Are We So Hard on Ourselves?

Join us Saturday morning 10:00am – 12:00pm

Coffee’s on!


Listening to our internal dialogue we can find we are relentlessly self-critical, unkind and unforgiving.  This harsh approach to our pain sabotages our efforts to live a happy fulfilling life, while increasing our pain and discontent.


Join us this morning for an exploration of a practice about loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity that cuts through our self-criticism. There is a traditional Buddhist practice of the Four Limitless Ones, which can help us find a way to include ourselves in our circle of care, which has the power to change everything. 


This workshop is one of an innovative new series offered once a month on Saturday mornings with senior Shambhala teacher Shastri Jil Amadio. Jil will offer teachings, practical advice and inspiration to support you as you explore the richness and challenge of meditation practice
