How Anger Destroys Our Relationship
April 1 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating until February 24, 2021
Buddha taught that love is the great protector. Both we ourselves and others are protected by love from harmful actions and suffering, and a loving heart inspires us to treat others with consideration and kindness. However, our love is often mixed with attachment, which makes us possessive, anxious and easily hurt. Come explore Buddha’s wisdom teachings on how to discern the difference between love and attachment, and learn methods to weaken our attachment while improving our mind of love
Each class begins with guided breathing meditation, to help settle the mind, let go of distractions and cultivate inner peace.
Gen Demo will then give a practical teaching based on the topic of the class series and explain how we can integrate Buddha’s timeless wisdom into our busy daily lives.
The teaching is then followed by a guided meditation to help us mix our mind with the teaching and take it to heart.
DISCUSSION AND Q&A
At the end of the meditation class we spend a minutes for group discussion and the teacher will take any questions that the class might have about the topic.
