Relationships That Last - Evening Classes in September
Throughout the Coast • Aug 31st - Sept 29th • $10/8 Conc
In these modern times love is a mystery, relationships are complicated and loneliness is endemic. So why are lasting, satisfying relationships so hard to come by, and so difficult to maintain? This talk will address how our approach to others is tainted by a self-centred point of view and an unrealistic expectation for others to constantly make us happy and fulfil our desires.Please note our Wednesday night Bateau Bay Class has moved, we now offer a new class in Wamberal on Wednesday night with Resident Teacher Gen Dawa. Check our website for more info.
