Sustainable Compassion – short course
A short course over 3 Thursday evenings and a Saturday morning exploring Compassion and Resilience in the buddhist path of practice.
At times we can feel overwhelmed by the challenges of our lives, and the great challenges faced by humanity. How do we bring self-care, joy and steadiness to the compassionate heart so that we don’t get burned out? Where is the place for grief and anger in the face of injustice? How do we take action that is both wise and loving? Through guided meditation, discussion and reflection, this short course will explore skilful responses to suffering. Newcomers to meditation, as well as those with more experience, are all welcome.
