 A LOVE LESS ORDINARY

7 Week Online Meditation Course with Chelvi Mailvaganan

(Video Catch-up available for 7 days)

How to Make All of your Relationships More Loving, Light and Meaningful

Now that we are shifting back to actual face-to-face relationships, what better time to see if we can’t improve those relationships? In addition to face-to-face, how about heart-to-heart?

Although we always seek happiness in our close relationships, so many of those relationships wind up burdened with too much of the opposite: Unhappiness.

According to Buddha it’s because we often confuse desirous attachment for love. Desirous attachment is a deluded, unpeaceful state of mind, that sees the other people as our source of happiness, and consequently expects these people to make us happy. But it is a con job. Happiness doesn’t come from other people It comes from our own mind.

Desirous attachment undermines our love for family, friends and others, making those relationships ordinary and setting us up for dissatisfaction and conflict again and again.

In this series, we will learn how to recognise and reduce our desirous attachment and to replace it with an authentic love that actually does reveal pure happiness. We will experience a love less ordinary and discover how all our relationships can become extraordinary – extraordinary and crucial components of an extraordinary life.

Suitable for everyone!

Classes last for an hour. They are suitable for complete beginners and those with more experience of meditation. You’re more than welcome to join individual sessions or attend the series as a whole.

These online drop-in classes aim to teach effective, meditation-based solutions to everyday problems taken from the Kadampa Buddhist tradition. Everyone is welcome – these practical meditations can be practised by anyone, whether Buddhist or not.
