Radical Compassion: FYD and NVC in Action

With Lama Tsultrim Allione

April 13 - 16, 2017

In this training two quite different yet compatible methods will be taught as practical hands-on methods to work with our emotions and develop deep empathy both for ourselves and others. As Buddhism has moved to the West the interface of psychology and Buddhist teachings has brought forth processes for how to embody compassion in our lives. The five-step practice of Feeding Your Demons® is based in the Chod teachings of the eleventh century Tibetan woman teacher Machig Labdron and NVC (Nonviolent Communication®) also known as Compassionate Communication was developed by psychologist Marshall Rosenberg, PhD. This will be an experiential training in which participants will receive enough training in both FYD® and NVC® to be able to continue to practice after the training.
