Transform the Way You Love: A Special Weekend with Gen Kelsang Gomlam

February 14-16

“Pure unconditional love never causes any pain or worry but only peace and joy.”

– Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

We all wish for good relationships in our lives, but relationships between couples, parents and children, or friends often suffer from misunderstandings, unrealistic expectations and conflict. We love each other, and yet we are not always happy together. 

This is because we do not understand the real nature of love and how to practically improve our love in our close relationships. In this Special Weekend, we will begin this process and have something to take home that has the power to change our lives forever. Everyone welcome!

Special Friday Night Lecture: Love Desire & Relationships 7:00-8:30 PM

In this Special Friday Night Lecture, Gen Gomlam will help us to look at why things can go wrong our relationship with others. We will learn practical methods to improve the quality of our interactions with our partner, family, friends, and colleagues – in fact, all those who share our lives. Using this advice, we can experience the mental freedom to finally enjoy our relationships with more confidence, leading to happiness for ourselves and others.

Transform the Way You Love Day Course 10:00 AM-3:00 PM

We generally expect that anytime we love we are taking a big risk of being hurt in the future. In day course, we will learn how to experience love without expectation. We can transform the way we love so that our love will become a reliable source of happiness with no fear of pain. Everyone welcome!

Special Sunday Class: Love Without Pain 10:00 -11:30 AM

Why is it that so often our relationships and interactions with others result in a storm of painful emotions? Why do we feel so much grief when we are separated from those we care for? The answer to these questions can be found within Buddha’s teachings on love and attachment. By learning to distinguish between these two very different but often mixed states of mind we can establish the foundation for lasting, harmonious relationships, improve our experience of pure love and solve many of our daily problems. Everyone welcome!
