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.
