105: The Heart of Healing

‘‘Real caring… is a healing essence that can be distilled from experience, in much the same way that skillful cooking can bring out wonderful flavors in our food.” - from Caring, by Tarthang Tulku

This class will touch both head and heart. Medical doctors Bob Dozor MD, and Richard Kingsland MD, will explore how caring can allow students to open into direct communication with self and others. These doctors present participants with the fact that they have more control of their health than they might think. Studying "Caring"  will facilitate improving one’s healthy lifestyle and will include experiential practices to open the heart. Two terms (12 classes) will fulfill prerequisite to begin Revelations of Mind in January 2023.
Times are hard. This class will evoke healing at both societal and individual levels by promoting communication between head and heart. Caring begins with self-care and then opens into helping others.

Benefits

We will experience the healing power of communicating with the heart through readings in Caring, and gain access to multiple evidence-based modalities and practices to improve our own health and well-being.

  • “This class is a heartening combination of the Lotus Healing practices and up-to-date Covid 19 science as only the insiders know it. These three generous doctors clarify the research, and answer our questions in a most companionable way.”
