ABOUT THE COURSE
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, dependence and conflict.
During this day course we will learn how to distinguish between these minds and free ourselves from attachment while cultivating a pure love for others.
