Room: London meditation hall
The Friday evening talk is open to all - attendance is free

A meditation practice gives rise to compassion, wisdom, and confidence--all of which seem to disappear in our most intimate relationships. The closer we get to another person, the more difficult it becomes to be kind. Relationships present our deepest challenges along the spiritual path.

This weekend programme will explore the juncture of spirituality and relationships via talks from Susan, group discussion, and meditation practices. You will gain insights into falling in love, sustaining love, and losing love, and learn on-the-spot practices to bring mindfulness off the cushion and into your relationships.


We will explore:

  • How to bring the fruits of spiritual practice into relationships to deepen warmth, intimacy, and kindness
  • How Buddhism's Four Noble Truths may be applied to love
  • Vows you can actually honor in a long term relationship
  • The power of loving kindness to heal disconnection
  • Heartbreak as a strange state of grace

Join writer and Buddhist teacher Susan Piver for an exploration of love as a spiritual practice.
