A Support Group for People with Serious Illnesses and Their Carers or Friends

Although the basis of the meditations and discussions is Tibetan Buddhism, and the place where the classes are held is a Tibetan Buddhist Centre, we believe that our presentations are accessible to all, whether one has a spiritual tradition or not.

Our purpose is to encourage the further development of peace and harmony in one's life which can lead to the healing of body and mind.

This group is a development of the Healing Meditation Program which has been running at Tara Institute since 1991.

The Focus of the classes is to support people with serious illnesses and to develop meditational skills that will support them in their goal of healing. By "healing" we mean the essential healing of the mind. When the mind experiences wholeness, there is peace and acceptance of the whole of ourselves.

Please see the program's webpage here for full details.

Dharma Quote

Even when we are seeking to accomplish our own aims, it is illogical, even in a worldly sense, to disregard the welfare of others. When the text says, ‘when seeking to accomplish one’s own aims, one must not disregard the welfare of others’ it is in relation to not giving up the sense of love and compassion towards others. According to this tradition, in order to fulfil our own aims, which is to achieve the state of enlightenment, we need to develop love and compassion towards others. This point needs to be understood.
