Nourishing our most important relationships.

How to practically reduce resentment or frustration and increase love and acceptance.

Buddha explained that if we wish to enjoy good relationships, it is essential that we learn to distinguish between love and desirous attachment. These two minds are easily confused but attachment gives rise to suffering such as craving, jealousy and conflict; whereas love never produces problems. During this retreat you will learn how to distinguish between these minds, free yourself from attachment and cultivate pure love for others. If we practice in this way our mind will remain peaceful and our relations will be enjoyable, stable and fulfilling.

Retreat sessions are guided by Kadam Carol Lutker and Gen Kelsang Chokyan, resident teachers of the Kadampa Buddhist Centers in Jacksonvilleand Tampa. These skilled instructors have many years of training in the teachings and meditation techniques of the New Kadampa Tradition of Buddhism established by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Each session includes instruction, traditional prayers and guided meditations for healing the mind and establishing inner peace.

Plan now to join this special away retreat in the woods, with Kadampa Meditation Center Tampa Bay Sangha.  Gen Kelsang Chokyan and Kadam Carol lead the event. Everyone is welcome – FAMILY FRIENDLY!
