Silence the Inner Critic with Meditation




Kadam Lucy James

Kadampa Meditation Center Chicago will present a talk and meditation, Silencing The Inner Critic, with international teacher Kadam Lucy James, at the Newberry Library from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m., April 4. No meditation experience is required.

           She will show practical and inspiring methods for letting go of attitudes about ourselves that limit us, weigh us down and prevent us from living to our full potential. “There is nothing fixed about us; through changing our thoughts, we can become who we want to be. By learning to accept ourselves happily within an understanding of our enormous capacity for freedom and growth, we will begin to awaken a source of deep peace and wisdom from within,”
says James.

            A three-week series, Overcoming Self-Criticism & Blame, will follow the talk from 7 to 8 p.m. on April 11, 18 and 25 at 2010 W. Pierce Avenue, in Wicker Park, and 13 Harrison Street, in Oak Park.

 

Admission is $17 in advance/$20 at the door. Location: 60 W. Walton St., Chicago. Register at MeditateInChicago.org/special-events/2019-04-04. For more information, call 708-763-0132 or visit MeditateInChicago.org.
