We are excited to announce our next Care Group training session for the Buddhist Care Line!
The Listening Skills training will be held over one weekend at Jhana Grove retreat centre in Serpentine WA. Private rooms and full vegetarian catering are included as part of the course.
The retreat opens at 4pm on Friday 6th November and ends at 5pm on Sunday 8th November 2020
Please note: There will be a fee of approximately $70 to cover the cost of the weekend retreat and catering.
Held in the beautiful setting of Jhana Grove retreat centre in Serpentine, the schedule has been designed to make the most of the weekend by providing focussed training sessions that will enable attendees to develop skills in compassionate listening.
The days are full, but with plenty of time for rest, breaks and to enjoy the delicious vegetarian meals prepared by our generous volunteer caterers.
Being available to those who call the Buddhist Care Line is in itself an extension of one’s spiritual practice and the training schedule includes guided meditation sessions to calm the mind, open the heart and bring our focus to compassionate care.
