Fearless Compassion

An Online Retreat with Venerable Robina

7 – 8 November 2020

Discover the inner strength and resiliency that comes from true compassion. Often we associate compassion with passivity, but in fact, true compassion is powerful. As His Holiness the Dalai Lama says “The more you are motivated by love, the more fearless and free your actions will be.”
