held at Cheney Mansion, 220 N Euclid Ave, Oak Park, IL 60302, USA


Love is a powerful medicine that is both healing and transformational. Everyone needs love in their hearts. Love makes you happy; love makes others happy. It is nourishing, protective, and provides joy and meaning to our life. Through the practice of love, each day will have a clear direction and purpose, and we will gradually access our potential to experience a powerful, pure, and all-embracing love that brings tremendous happiness to our family, friends, and finally to everyone. 

Hosted at the historic Cheney Mansion, we will be exploring different facets of Buddha's beautiful teachings on love, gaining direct experience of them through clear, practical teachings and guided meditation. Everyone is welcome.

Following the event, you are welcome to our Open House with refreshments at KMC Chicago in the Oak Park Arts District. Meet Gen Rigpa, enjoy some refreshments, and explore our beautiful Center!

Gen Rigpa will also lead a special Mother's Day talk on Sunday, May 8: "A Mother's Kindness: A Buddhist Perspective"
