Working together for a better world...
With Don de Silva
Many personal development programmes are underway to enhance the potential, capacity and well-being of an individual. These involve mentoring, coaching, training, and chaplaincy. These terms can be somewhat confusing, given the similarities and overlaps between them. This session will explore the Buddha’s comprehensive practices on enhancing the capacities of an individual. Drawing from Early Buddhist Texts, it will focus on the Buddha’s teachings on being responsible for your own well-being and the Buddhist principles on providing guidance and counselling to others and the specific requirements of a counsellor.
Time: 15th September 2.00-4.00
Place: online by Zoom
Cost: by donation (suggested donation for those with a professional interest £15)
