Love without Pain | 24 Feb | Morden & Kensington

£25.00£30.00

Love can give rise to great happiness but all too often it seems to lead to pain and suffering. This is because we fail to understand the difference between love and attachment. Love is the source of happiness whereas the pain and sorrow in our relationships arises from our attachment.

In this special day course, Kelsang Lekmon will explain how we can approach our love for our partner, family and friends from a fresh, new perspective by learning how to discriminate clearly between love and attachment. In this way our relationships will become more harmonious, joyful and long-lasting, and function to draw us closer to a state of pure and lasting happiness.

In Kensington there will be two teaching sessions with guided meditations and time for questions at the end.

In Morden he first two sessions will include practical teachings and meditations. The third session will be a panel with three senior Kadampa Buddhist practitioners. This is an opportunity to ask questions of practitioners who have been applying these teachings in their relationships for many years.
