“There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.” Dalai Lama.
Loving kindness is the principle of meeting everything you experience with gentleness and compassion.
We meet our disordered eating behaviour with loving kindness.
We meet our judgemental and critical thoughts with loving kindness.
We meet our bodies with loving kindness.
Loving kindness helps us to transition, gently and easily, into new ways of being.
Without kindness, you have no practice at all.
This step underpins the IEWIN approach.
