Wednesday Evening Drop-In Class

Love Without Pain

(free for members)

Love can be a source of great happiness, but all too often it seems to give rise to pain. This is because we fail to distinguish between our love and our attachment for others.

In this series, Gen Zamling will explain where we go wrong in our relationships, and why the mind of pure love can never give rise to pain. Discovering the difference between attachment and its opposite -- love -- enables us to free ourself from conflict, heartbreak and grief, and shows us how to experience joyful, harmonious and long-lasting relationships.

Each class will include practical teachings and guided meditations that can greatly improve the qualitiy and stability of your relationships. Everyone is welcome -- no previous experience is necessary.
