Maria Helena Kubrusly och Ralph McFall kommer till Göteborg och föreningen i februari och ger en helgkurs/workshop baserad på Tarthang Tulkus senaste bok – Caring.
“Caring is the answer to our difficulties, not because it brings them to an end, but because it shows us the way to love and respect and teaches us how to make a meaningful journey through this life. Care expands in all directions. We can care for ourselves, we can care for others, and we can care for the world in which we find ourselves.”
From Caring, by Tarthang Tulku
This workshop is based on the new book Caring, by Tarthang Tulku, a Tibetan Buddhist lama who has lived and worked in the West for over 50 years. In language at times simple and heartfelt and at others challenging and profound, he shows us the deep importance of learning to care, and offers many exercises, contemplations, and practices for contacting and increasing our capacity to care.
During this workshop, we will reflect, write, and discuss to examine our beliefs and ideas about caring. We will especially look at how to best care for ourselves-appreciating our embodiment, finding nourishment through our senses, beginning to see the role of the mind in our experience and how to turn it toward self-care. We will investigate the link between caring and wisdom. The workshop will also include some Kum Nye (Tibetan yoga ) exercises to relax and open the body, the senses, and the heart.
If you are “looking for something” or feel “there must be something more”, Caring can provide a way to shape a life path of discovery and meaning. If you have some experience of a spiritual path, you may find valuable suggestions for keeping caring at the center of your path, which can make all your endeavors more fruitful.
The Instructors: Maria Helena Kubrusly and Ralph McFall have been students of Tarthang Tulku and full time volunteers in the Nyingma Community, for a combined 70 years. They are excited to be sharing this new, very accessible approach to spiritual development and look forward to investigating and learning more about caring with workshop participants.
