Silencing the Inner Critic

A Half Day Meditation course

Saturday 1 April

At this half day course learn how to replace the unhelpful habit of self criticism with positive ways of thinking that leave us happy and content with who we are.

Through practising effective meditations that change the way we think we will gradually stop listening to the inner critic and instead relate to the best in our self. In this way we will build true self confidence and realise our full potential.
