Improving Relationships

Sundays | 10:30 – 11:45am | June 2-30
with Modern Buddhism Teacher Kadam Sharon Lovich

Unless you’re already an enlightened being, you have at least one or two relationships in your life that could be a little better.  Maybe it’s a relationship with a family member, significant other, or ex.  Maybe it’s a relationship at work.  Wherever difficult relationships occur in our life, stress, irritation, unhappiness, and disappointment are quick to follow.

During this series, we’ll explore what happens to make a relationship go sour and how to improve it. While we may never be able to change the other person, we can certainly change our own mind, leading us to a greater peace within that challenging relationship.

June 2 ~  The blame game

June 9 ~  Getting our way

June 16 ~ Faults?!  What faults?

June 23 ~ Taking down the inner bully

June 30 ~ The peace of humility

Happiness is something we all strive for in our heart of hearts. Yet we tend to make the attainment of happiness more complicated than it actually is, and habitual negative ways of thinking can also take us in the opposite direction. In this series, we will explore eight inspiring contemplations and meditations from the Buddhist tradition that will uplift our mood and enrich our life on a daily basis.
