Donation Based | Online

On February 14, 2023, you’re invited to join Tibet House US’ donation-based offering to ground in self-compassion. Sit in community and tenderly warm yourself with the love from your own heart. This is an opportunity to contemplate the non-duality of how we naturally want to be loved by others, and at the same time, self-compassion is a way that we can love ourselves.

Tony Pham (Butterfly) will guide a 25-minute meditation and conclude with a dedication of merit.
