All You Need Is Love

Buddha taught that we can easily cultivate true love and happiness in our hearts through meditation.
By learning to cherish others we gain the ability to solve our inner problems. With peace in our mind it is easy to love others and our relationships become more rewarding and long lasting. This course will focus on meditations that help us to become more peaceful and to relate to others in a positive and caring way.
“Cherishing others is not so difficult, all we need to do is to understand why we should cherish them, make a firm decision to do so, and then meditate repeatedly and sincerely on this decision.” – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
Everybody is welcome!
