Love Yourself, Love the World With John Barclay
December 1 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm| Free
The session begins by exploring ways of cultivating kindness and compassion towards ourselves then expanding toward others
The Buddha gave specific teachings on True Love which can be particularly helpful in nourishing and healing us in the midst of the everyday stresses of our urban lifestyles.
We begin by exploring ways of cultivating kindness and compassion towards ourselves. Then with increased confidence, expanding a practice of kindness and compassion toward others that naturally makes us feel fresher and more alive in our daily existence.
