About This Course
Almost everyone experiences at some time the feeling of loneliness. Even if we have family, friends, and other good conditions, we can still feel isolated or misunderstood and suffer from loneliness; yearning to feel a deeper sense of connection with others. At times the weight of loneliness can feel immense and difficult to overcome.
Using Buddhist teachings and meditations, we can heal our feelings of loneliness by recognizing that the perception of ourselves as separate from others is an illusion. In truth, we are all naturally and profoundly interconnected. By learning to understand and feel this connection we will reduce our sense of isolation. In this way we can allow a natural closeness and authentic love for others to arise even if we find ourselves at times physically alone.
