Next Series: The Courage to Love
with Lisa and Joe LaMattina

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? Buddha’s teachings tell us how to tap into the reservoir of love that exists within each of us.

In this series, we will discover how meditation can enable us to transform and heal all our relationships, including the one we have with ourself! As we’ll see, our wounds can serve as the springboard for our becoming the powerful, joyful, beneficial person we wish to be.
