Why is it that so often our relationships and interactions with others result in a storm of painful emotions? Why do we feel so much grief when we are separated from those we care for? And why does what appears to be a “perfect match” so often end in conflict? The answer to all these questions can be found within Buddha’s teachings on love, desire and attachment.
Gold and diamonds don’t come shining, glistening and beautifully-formed like those in jeweller’s window. We find them hidden in darkness, misshapen, covered in dirt and rather unattractive – but still they are priceless. Buddha says we are very similar. Beneath our bad mental habits and limited opinions of ourselves, we all have hidden potential, like a shining jewel.
In this special day course, Gen Kelsang Wangmo will explain how we can heal our relationships from the inside out. Approaching 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.
