Caring for Emotions - Gestures of Compassion 

You are cordially invited to join the online 14-sessions course, which presents unique teaching based on the book "Caring" by Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche.


The course focuses on ways of caring for our emotional patterns by understanding the role communication and language play in setting these patterns. The process that automatically leads us to emotionality is directly experienced and explored, promoting an understanding of choices we can make to alter the outcome of our patterns.

You will learn to protect your heart and head from your own negativity as you practice a caring approach to dissolving and transforming emotionality. The experiential methods of this course, which include meditation, sharing, and Tibetan yoga, provides a healing foundation to more fully explore caring for ourselves and our world by:

"Caring for Emotions" teachings offered me the possibility in a new way, to learn, through the eyes and language of the Heart, how to look, embrace, explore, and transform my patterns of emotionality in my daily life experiences. As a turning point, the power of the healing quality of Caring, made a real difference in my awareness, my way of reacting, bringing me more space, balance, and strength".
