This retreat examines classical teachings on care and how these ideas might address the particular sufferings of our time.

He considers Buddhism to be a constantly evolving culture of awakening with the capacity to reinvent itself in accord with the needs of different cultures and modern times. 21 CEUs for counselors, therapists and social workers offered.
