These are on-line classes, recorded for you to watch at your convenience Tues-Sat each week.
There is a different class topic each week.
These classes include both meditations and teachings based on Buddha’s wisdom that can help us to stay peaceful, even in the most challenging times. Current teaching topic: “How to Love People You Don’t Like”

Is it possible to learn to love those whom we presently don’t even like?

It’s so easy to feel dislike towards people. From co-workers to family members, from neighbors to politicians, sometimes people can seem so annoying and unlikable. Especially these days, many people find it difficult to feel positively towards, let alone love, people with different views, opinions, beliefs or lifestyles.

Buddha explained that we all possess the capacity to authentically love even those whom we presently dislike. It is imperative that we learn not only to tolerate these people, but to like and cherish them. This practice not only benefits us, but also benefits society at large.

This course will focus on overcoming obstacles to love, and exploring Buddha’s  methods for genuinely connecting with others, rather than judging or distancing from them. Everyone, whether Buddhist or non-Buddhist, can derive great benefit from these practical views, meditations and insights.
