Caring for Yourself – Gestures of Joy | Online

Learn to integrate head and heart to have a joyful life

Caring for Yourself is a 12-weeks course based on the book ‘Caring’ by Tarthang Tulku. The ‘Caring’ approach has the power to integrate ‘head and heart’. Caring helps you to cultivate a compassionate and wise friendship towards ourselves and others.

“Caring means we treasure ourselves and others: it means we hold all life as a precious gift. When we care, we display kindness and concern: we pay attention, we nurture and protect: we are benevolent and thoughtful, considering and protecting what we treasure.”
– Tarthang Tulku in Caring, p. XX
