Love, Desire and Relationships

Relationships can be a source of great joy and meaning in our lives, but they can also be a source of great pain and discontent.

In this series, we will learn simple tips and practical meditations that can improve the quality of our relationships. Kelsang Khacho will share Buddha’s teachings on what pure love is, and how to distinguish this positive state of mind from unhealthy states of mind which only bring suffering, dissatisfaction, disappointment and distress.

Everyone is welcome.

Take the Leap

We need to find a middle way between the extremes of materialism and spirituality. For the most part, we try to improve our quality of life through external change. We have great expectations of a new job, a new place to live, or a new partner. And then we notice that the same old mental habits, perhaps anxiety, frustration, or fear of confrontation, return yet again.

Buddhist meditation techniques offer us the opportunity to understand and transform the thought patterns that determine the quality of our life. Through sincerely practicing these methods we can finally break the habits that are keeping us stuck and enjoy more freedom and control over our life.

Everyone is welcome.
