Meditation Workshop Love, desire, attachment Saturday 22 April 10am - 1pm Days Hours Add to Cart LOVE, DESIRE, ATTACHMENT If we wish to enjoy good relationships, it is essential that we learn to distinguish between love and attachment. While love brings only good results and happiness, attachment brings only problems and suffering such as craving, jealousy, conflict and pain.In this workshop, Gen Ani will explain how to distinguish between these two minds and free ourselves from attachment while cultivating a pure love for others. If we practise in this way our mind will remain peaceful, and our relationships with others will be enjoyable, stable and fulfilling. TIME: 10am to 1pm COST: $50pp (includes morning tea) What To Expect There are two sessions in each workshop. They consist of an introduction, simple breathing meditation and teaching and conclude with a contemplative meditation on the teaching from that session.Buddhist meditation involves staying alert and keeping our back straight, so we sit on chairs for the duration of the course. There’s no need to bring anything, although you may wish to bring some water and a jacket. Refreshments are provided in the break session.Attendees come from all walks of life and there’s no need to have any meditation experience as all meditations are guided. Everyone is welcome.
