Half Day Meditation Course in West Malling
Saturday 22 January | 10am – 1pm
Booking Online Required – Limited Capacity!
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 half day course, our resident teacher James 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.
The course will include guided meditations, teachings, discussion and time for Q&A
