Choosing Love, Through Ups & Downs

Love can be a great healer and source of genuine peace and happiness in our lives and relationships. However, it can also be a real challenge to maintain that warmth, affection and love when we meet difficult times in our lives and relationships, whether with a partner, family member or friend.

In this series of drop-in sessions with Kadam Adam – which are suitable for everyone – through weekly talks and relaxing guided meditations, we will explore how it’s possible to consciously choose to love the people we’re with, through the inevitable ups and downs of life and relationships.

We will explore how meditation enables us to discover, cultivate and live more consistently in alignment with the innate potential that lies within each and every one of us for a deep and authentic love.
We will learn how to skilfully recognise, reduce and let go of feelings of guilt, hurt, anger or resentment, and thereby see how it’s possible to heal old wounds and difficulties in relationships.

Finally, we will discover how every time we choose to love, we increase our own peace of mind and happiness, as well as create the basis for genuinely healthy relationships with everyone in our lives.

Note: Each class in the series is self-contained, so please feel free to drop in to any class, any week. There’s also an opportunity to stay back for a cuppa and chat after class, in what’s always a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
