Overcoming Loneliness | Dec 15

December 15, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Overcoming Loneliness

with Arthur Calnan

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 meditation, 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, allowing a natural closeness and authentic love for others to arise.

The course is divided into two sessions which will include guided meditation and teaching, with a break for refreshments.

Everyone is welcome!
