“Developing Compassion and Wisdom and helping those in need whenever possible is the true meaning of human life” Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, How To Transform Your Life

Caring for others is the most natural part of our life. Maybe you are a health care professional, an educator, a parent, or a manager. Often the people we know and love, need special help due to the challenges they face in life. Though we start with a good intention sometimes the difficulties we encounter while helping others can lead to feelings of frustration, discouragement, disappointment, or burnt out. In this half-day course we will look at ‘how to care for the caregiver’ so we can avoid these pitfalls and instead keep connected to our good heart. This course will include talks, guided meditations and time for discussion. Refreshments will be served during the break.  Everyone Welcome.
