The Buddhist approach to self-care

Weekly classes – November 29, December 6, 13

Class fee £9 (weekly rate) ¦ free with membership

Using Buddhist wisdom, Gen Nyingpo will explain how to care and carve out time for yourself without feeling selfish or guilty. Superficial affirmations are not enough to let go of ingrained habits that stop you from doing what you need to do to look after yourself. These habits will continue to shape your life and obscure your true potential until you address them directly. Through practical instructions and guided Buddhist meditations, Gen Nyingpo will explain how to become your own protector. Having this discipline is an essential tool for being able to cope with the stresses and strains of daily life. This way we can learn how to be more effective and deal more easily when life is challenging.

You will:

Learn how to care for yourself effectively and bring wellbeing to your life

Become more balanced and wise with your approach to self-care

See how to protect yourself from guilty over-working
