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.

Level 1 is designed to be experiential, interactive and dynamic. Exercises and practices explore skills for living a more caring life and increasing our awareness of the ways we cause harm to ourselves.

Caring for ourselves is the foundation of being able to care for others.

Caring Course 1 is taught by Odiyan faculty Leigh Deering and Maria Helena Kubrusly, combining over 50 years as students of Tarthang Rinpoche. Caring Courses 2 and 3 will be offered in 2020. All proceeds from the online classes support the Odiyan community.
