Transforming the Holidays Through Love


Katy Brennan, Buddhist meditation teacher in the East Village

The holiday season can present particular challenges for many of us, particularly with regard to stress and disappointments around our relationships—personal, familial, professional, even our relationships to fellow shoppers or holiday travelers. Through practicing love, as taught by Buddha, we can transform this and experience this season (and our whole lives) more happily and harmoniously. The mind of authentic love naturally moves us away from our painful and excessive self-involvement towards an open and wonderful connection with others and with our world.

Applying these meditations on love to our own lives will help us let go of our dissatisfactions and will heal our relationships, both with ourselves and others, making them joyful, harmonious, and deeply fulfilling..
