Going All in on Love
With the Eight Auspicious Symbols
Sundays | 10 – 11:30am
Cost: $10 (Free for Members)
About the class
All living beings have this basic wish: to be happy and avoid suffering all the time. How can we fulfill this deepest wish and help others do the same? What’s love got to do with this?
Buddha taught that the secret to happiness is cherishing others. Through learning to develop our love at deeper and deeper levels we will experience a sense of mental and physical well-being that arises naturally from the mind of love. By putting this love into practice in daily life, we will learn to solve all our problems. Eventually, this love will transform into the universal love and compassion of a fully enlightened mind, and we will have fulfilled our own wishes and will have the ability to help others do the same.
In this series, we will also explore and integrate the meaning of ‘The Eight Auspicious Symbols’, which symbolize the spiritual path that leads to freedom from suffering and permanent inner peace, into our practice of loving kindness.
