Finding a Deeper Joy
Why is it that so often our relationships and interactions with others trigger painful emotions? Why do we sometimes feel anxiety when we are separated from those we care for? And why does what appears to be a “perfect match” so often end in resentment and blame? The answer to all these questions can be found within Buddha’s teachings on love, attachment and empathy.
By learning to distinguish between these very different, but often mixed states of mind, we can establish the foundation for lasting harmonious relationships, improve our experience of pure love and solve many of our daily problems.
This series will introduce powerful meditations and wisdom insights into the kindness and good qualities of others encouraging us to keep a mind of love, even when a relationship is difficult. There will also be a special meditation introduced that allows us to step into the shoes of another person and empathize with them, seeing the situation from the other person’s perspective. With practise these meditations insights and tools allow us to be more compassionate, understanding and patient with others, especially those that we find challenging.
July 5 – Overcoming difficulties that keep our relationships stuck
July 12 – Finding true connection
July 19 – Exchanging our self with other
