Love, Desire & Attachment: According to Buddhism
Half-day Course Saturday 20 July | 10am - 1pm
with Kadam Lucy James
In this course, Kadam Lucy will explain how learning to distinguish love from attachment can save us from immense heartache and lead us to finding great meaning and joy in our lives.
For most of us, our love is a mixture of two things – attachment, which is not in fact love at all, and love, which is. Attachment stands in horrible contrast to all types of love, but to begin with it can be quite hard for us to tell them apart. It is one of Buddha’s great kindnesses that he distinguishes between them so clearly.
Kadam Lucy is a senior teacher of Kadampa Buddhism. She has taught extensively in England, Florida, and San Francisco, and helped establish many meditation centres over the past 34 years.
