Saturday, July 11, 2015 @ 10am – 1pm
Pre-registration is closed but walk-ins are welcome!
We all want to stop fighting, starting loving but often we don’t know how! Family members really know how to push our buttons! Relationships with our families and friends are sources of both joyful and unhappy experiences. Buddha teaches that relationships containing a lot of friction can also be opportunities for great spiritual growth. This workshop will show how to transform difficult relationships, changing our experiences with friends and relatives so we can truly enjoy being in the company of others.
