This class will touch both head and heart. Physicians Bob Dozor MD and Richard Kingsland MD, PhD explore how caring allows humans to open into direct communication with self and others and how head and heart working together create wisdom. The doctors present participants with the reality 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 and mind.
Times are hard. This class will evoke healing at both societal and individual levels by promoting communication and nurturing openness. Caring begins with self-care and then opens into helping others.
Classes meet online for six weeks, for one hour a week. Classes are recorded and you will have access to the recordings for your personal use only. Each week, there will be active dialogue based on readings from Caring by Tarthang Tulk. Experiential practices deepen the experience. The last 15 minutes of each class turns to evidenced based health practices. Relevant materials are posted on the Dharma College website page reserved for this class. An online chat room gives you the optional ability to meet and dialog with your fellow students.
