Love, Attachment & desire
About the course
The new year is a symbol of possibility – a time to bring in new ideas and a new direction. A new perspective can change everything!
Is love without pain possible? Love is supposed to give rise to our greatest happiness but all too often it seems to lead to pain and suffering. Confusingly it is as if that which brings us the most happiness also brings us the most intense and deep sorrow. According to Buddha, the confusion arises because we fail to distinguish between authentic love and the deluded mind of attachment. Love is the source of happiness. The pain in our relationships arise from our attachment.
In this course we will learn to approach our love for partner, family and friends from a fresh, new perspective. We will learn to discriminate clearly between love and attachment. This insight will allow us to use our relationships to train in diminishing attachment and increasing love.
