Self-Esteem & Overcoming Perfectionism

The pressures we can all feel at times to be perfect – the perfect partner, parent, friend, high achiever or to have the perfect body and lifestyle – can leave us feeling wherever we are in life, and who we are, is never quite good enough. If left unchecked, this can all too easily undermine our sense of self-esteem, self-worth and happiness over time.

Each week in this new series of talks and guided meditations with Kadam Adam, we will explore how to recognise, reduce and let go of any tendencies towards perfectionism and develop and maintain a new and healthy sense of self-esteem. We will explore how this leads to deeper peace of mind, happiness and confidence in our capacity to live our best life, from the inside-out, free of the pressures of perfectionism.

Note: Each class in the series is self-contained, so please feel free to attend the whole series or drop in to any class, any week. There’s also an opportunity to stay back for a cuppa and chat after class if you wish, in what’s always a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
