Friday Night Lecture: Love Without Pain

07:00 pm to 08:15 pm
Kadampa Meditation Center Bloomington
http://www.meditationinbloomington.org

We all wish for good relationships in our lives, but relationships between couples, parents and children, or friends often suffer from misunderstandings, unrealistic expectations and conflict. We love each other, and yet we are not always happy together. This is because we do not understand the real nature of love and how to practically improve our love in our close relationships.

In this Friday Night Lecture, we will begin deconstructing our misunderstandings on love and learn simple but effective practices to take home that will have the power to change our relationships forever.
Everyone welcome!
