Meditation & Modern Buddhism: Classes Across Sydney

Mondays · Tuesdays · Saturdays · from 15 August

The instant we recognise someone as kind to us, or even just as similar to us, our heart softens towards them.

It’s the recognition of a shared experience that is the key to feeling warm towards another living being. We are naturally open to liking someone who shares our enjoyment – such as watching a child at play, taking in the same sunset, or cheering on the same team. And we can also feel the bond of a common struggle.

At the heart of Buddhist logic about our world is the understanding of the equality and interdependence of all living beings. By following some simple recognitions, we realise that others are just like us – and so they’re important, and fundamentally likeable. Our heart opens, and we find ourself surrounded by friends.

Join these weekly classes across Sydney and online to discover how it is truly possible – and logical – to like others more.

Starts from week beginning 15 August for four weeks. Come any week. Just $15 in-person or online.
