Compassionate Boundaries: Caring for ourselves and others
A workshop with Tenzin Chogkyi


Four Tuesday evenings, September 13 through October 4
7:00 to 8:30 pm PDT Via ZOOM
 

  • How do we help others while taking care of ourselves?

  • How can we say “no” and set limits with compassion?

  • How do we set limits while staying connected in our relationships?

 

It’s easy to think that being kind and compassionate means that we have to be available to everyone, 24/7, and do whatever it is they ask of us. We feel guilty about saying “no” or valuing our own needs. As a result, instead of feeling open and compassionate, we end up feeling resentful, stressed, and burned out. Is this really the meaning of compassion? How can we set boundaries compassionately so that we can hold ourselves with care while helping others?


Join us for four Tuesday evenings for a dynamic workshop exploring this important question – real compassion training for real life.


This four-session workshop will include presentation of concepts, contemplative practices, Q&A, discussion, and interactive exercises. Participants will gain insights and skills that will allow them to show up with compassion and altruistic action sustainably, thus avoiding burn-out.


Prerequisites: It is helpful, but not required, if participants have taken a training like Compassion Cultivation Training or Mindful Self-Compassion, or studied compassion in a contemplative context.
This class will be held on Zoom. Space in class is limited to 24 people, and you must have a working camera and microphone to participate.

Pricing:

$199
