May 6-27 Improving Our Relationships with Meditation
Relationships make up the fabric of our life…wherever we turn, we are interacting with others: family, friends, co-workers, even our pets. Everyone wants these interactions to be positive, peaceful and enjoyable.
By getting to know our mind, we can gain insight into the roles that we have in all our relationships and begin to let go of irritation and negativity and develop healthy mental habits that foster love and care for others.
