Mindful relationships: September 7 – 8, 2019

A Land of Joy seminar with Ondy Willson. 

Unless we’re alone on a desert island then relating well with others could be considered simply the basis of any kind of happiness. One could argue that relating to family, friends and colleagues are what brings us the greatest joy and satisfaction. When we fall out with others, or feel badly treated then we can be overwhelmed by hurt and confusion.

In this weekend course we shall consider how to train our minds to get the best from our relationships and be able to open our hearts to anyone, regardless of whether we like them or not.

Concepts covered:

  • Dealing with destructive emotions
  • Empathy and compassion
  • What makes a difficult person? Am I one?
  • Barriers to communication

This course will be presented in a workshop style and include teaching, discussion, meditations and relaxation.
