Building and Maintaining Happy Relationships

Feb 5, 12, 26 | 10.30-11.45am

No class on Feb 19, as the SHOAL Centre is closed for BC Family Day


In this series of classes, we will explore Buddha’s teachings on developing and maintain loving relationships with others. We all long for loving relationships and through understanding Buddha’s teachings on cherishing others we begin to develop a deep and stable source of loving kindness. Understanding our expectations, cherishing others, and developing equanimity will definitely improve all our relationships, leading to a happier life.

Feb 5 ~ What is Love? Letting go of expectations.
Feb 12 ~ Benefits of Cherishing others
Feb 26 ~  Becoming a friend to everyone – Developing Equanimity
