Join with the sangha on a journey into the heart of intimate relationships as a path of insight. While our spiritual lineage often draws from monastic traditions, this course delves into the practical application of Buddhist teachings within committed partnerships. Together, we will navigate the joys and challenges of intimate connections, focusing on cultivating the sublime qualities of mind highlighted by the Buddha, particularly through the lens of the Brahmaviharas. Through guided exploration, we will learn how to foster a deep sense of loving security within the context of impermanence and uncertainty, enriching our relationships with wisdom and compassion.

This program is open to all. The program will include guided meditation practices, dharma discussion, questions + responses, and an opportunity to engage with others in breakout groups.
