Love, Gratitude, and Opening Our Hearts

Everybody knows they want to love and be loved, but what actually is love? According to Buddha, the special feeling that we call love isn’t something outside of ourselves that we need to find and fall into. Rather it’s a special experience within ourselves that we all have. Learning to connect to the love in our heart will deeply enrich our lives, enhance our relationships and give us real insight into our potential for real happiness. We begin to recognize the possibility for universal love and the supreme good heart known as bodhichitta from which enlightenment arises. In this series we will learn special techniques for connecting to and deepening our experience of love.
