Caring From the Heart – Online

With Barbara Belew and Janet Smith

July 24 - August 28, 2021

Saturdays 9:00 – 10:30 AM PST

Please note the change in time!

The Caring from the Heart Course is an experiential, dynamic journey of self-discovery, which will allow you to integrate the healing energy of the heart into your daily life.   Coming back to the heart is a perfect way to deeply support ourselves as we go through this time of re-entry from the pandemic and the uncertainty we all still face. It may be the perfect gift to give yourself.

The Course is designed to expand our ability to care from the heart about and for ourselves, as we explore a broader and deeper understanding of ‘Caring’ through guided meditation practices, Tibetan yoga exercises, interactive reflections, and open group sharing.  

 “Caring from the Heart,”  is an interactive online course offered by Odiyan Retreat Center in Northern California. This Course is based on Tarthang Tulku’s most recent book, Caring. This lovely course was specially developed by the Odiyan Caring Teachers group and carries many blessings.
