Williamsburg Meditation Class

The Courage to Love

Love is the great healer, the harmonizer that brings joy to our relationships and great meaning to our life. So how do we remain open-hearted and loving in the face of betrayal, hurt and abuse? When we begin to feel wounded and insecure and overwhelmed, can we keep from shrinking into those wounds? Yes! Buddhist teachings reveal how we can tap into the reservoir of love that exists within each of us. In this series of talks, we will discover how meditation can enable us to transform and heal all our relationships, including the one we have with ourself! Love will encourage us to stop living defensively – caught up in anger or resentment or despair. As we will see, our wounds can serve as the springboard for our becoming the powerful, joyful and beneficial person we wish to be.

Using Meditation to Create Transformation

"If we were truly peaceful inside and had our mind under control, difficult people or circumstances would not be able to disturb this peace, and so we would feel no compulsion to blame anyone or regard them as our enemy."
- Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, How to Solve Our Human Problems

According to Buddha, if we want to be truly happy, we need to free ourself from the destructive influence of anger. By meditating on the methods taught by Buddha we will be able to transform the energy of anger into a creative response that opens us up to resolutions and new possibilities. Through this, we will be able to leave our habits of anger behind once and for all, and step into a new identity – someone who is always peaceful, happy, confident, beneficial, wise, and kind, regardless of our circumstances.
