“What No one Tells you about Love,” a Valentine’s Day Public Workshop
February 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
“What No one Tells you about Love,” a Special Valentine’s Day Public Workshop will take place in Port Jervis on Friday, February 14th, 7pm – 8:30pm at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church 31 Main Street, Port Jervis, New York, presented by Kadampa Meditation Center New York.
We all wish for good relationships in our lives, but relationships between couples, parents and children, or friends often suffer from misunderstandings, unrealistic expectations and conflict. We love each other, and yet we are not always happy together. This is because we do not understand the real nature of love and how to practically improve our love in our close relationships.
In this workshop you will receive simple and practical advice about how to find meaning and enjoyment in all of your relationships. By keeping this practical and timeless advice in our heart, we will learn to be happy in the company of our partner, family, friends and co-workers — anyone we might encounter.
Everyone is welcome, we sit in chars and no experience is necessary. Class is $10, no per-registration is needed, just drop in. Light refreshments. For more information call 845-856-9000 or visit KadampaNewYork.org.
