Sunday Morning Series – Love without Pain

Pre-Registration Recommended

Love without Pain
A series of 3 classes, held on 3 consecutive Sundays with Gen Kelsang Zopa

Sunday January 28, February 4, 11
10am-12pm
Bodhichitta Kadampa Buddhist Centre
970 Blanshard Street, Victoria BC

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 appeared 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 and attachment. By learning to distinguish between these two very different, but often mixed states of mind, we can establish the foundation for lasting harmonious relationships.

During this three-part course, Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Zopa will guide us in how to improve our experience of pure love and solve many of our daily problems.
