Summer Love | June 12, 19, 26

Love is possibly the most talked about feeling the world over… poems are written, songs are sung, movies are made, but do we understand what real love is?

In this three week course, we shall hear Buddha’s teaching on three types of love which bring happiness that is lasting and beautiful. Affectionate love, cherishing love and wishing love. One naturally leads to the other. Looking at these three types of love and how we can bring them into our lives will help us open our hearts and recognise that it’s quite true what the song says, “All we need is love”. This is the real path to happiness and joy.
