Leeds to Kenya: Mama Na Mtoto Mother and Baby Project

COMPASSION & KINDNESS

LEEDS TO KENYA: Mama Na Mtoto Mother and Baby Project

Hosted by Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds with Anita Jones

Anita’s project has the potential to greatly improve the life chances of thousands of women in this very challenging region. We hope that by promoting this inspiring example of international compassion through the Festival, we can raise its profile and help it to gain the financial support it needs to fully realise that potential, and to build an enduring link between the community of Leeds and one that so much needs our support.

Kindness and Wellbeing in the Caring Professions with Alison Murdoch

Alison Murdoch: Kindness and Wellbeing in the Caring Professions
Thursday, 10 September4:00 – 4:30pm

A conversation hosted by Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds with Alison Murdoch (Jamyang Buddhist Centre London)

If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete – Jack Kornfield

Why do some of the kindest people find it so hard to be kind to themselves? It’s hard to give from an empty cup. Yet people in the caring professions often pay far too little attention to their own wellbeing – leading to stress, a loss of motivation and energy, and even burnout. Alison has more than thirty years’ experience of supporting staff in frontline caring organisations and will introduce this important topic via a mixture of research, discussion and practical tools.
