Valentine's Day Special Event: Love without Pain

Sunday Morning Meditation Class

With Resident Teacher, Alex Bonano

$15 | Free for Supporting Members

Is love without pain possible? Love is supposed to give rise to our greatest happiness but all too often it seems to lead to pain and suffering. Confusingly it is as if that which brings us the most happiness also brings us the most intense and deep sorrow. According to Buddha, the confusion arises because we fail to distinguish between authentic love and the deluded mind of attachment. Love is the source of happiness. The pain in our relationships arise from our attachment.

In this course we will learn to approach our love for partner, family and friends from a fresh, new perspective. We will learn to discriminate clearly between love and attachment. This insight will allow us to use our relationships to train in diminishing attachment and increasing love. In this way our relationships will become not only more harmonious and joyful, but also they will become an integral and vital component of our spiritual path to enlightenment.

Each class is self contained, pre-registration not required.

Beginners welcome!
