Caring: Tarthang Rinpoche’s newest teachings to bring ease to the heart

Caring Course 1 online from Odiyan Retreat Center
February 22 – May 16, 2020

Enrollment is currently closed

This course is an opportunity to explore self-care as the starting point for a healthy, joyful life.Our need for these teachings on Caring is evident when we consider how, in our Western culture, we seem to be on a constant quest to improve ourselves. Most of the time we view ourselves as flawed beings who need to be ‘fixed’ before we have worth. Instead of a view of what we lack, we can care for ourselves with more gratitude for what we have been given. This new attitude will lead to a more satisfying and enjoyable life.
