“The predicament with loving is the power of the addiction of the practice of loving somebody, of getting so caught in the relationship that you can’t ever arrive at the essence of dwelling in love."
- Ram Dass
Human relationships of all kinds make up a large percentage of the baggage that fills our minds on a daily basis. In fact, feeling connected and appreciated by another is arguably the most important element for achieving wholeness and balance in our lives. Relationships of all kinds can serve as a beautiful and profound doorway to the spirit, but they can also be one of the heaviest obstacles to navigate in our day-to-day lives.
Ram Dass has spent half a century exploring the different ways spirituality can permeate relationships, and now you are invited to participate in a 4-week course that has the potential to shift your entire perspective about what it means to be in a relationship - whether it's with a lover, a spouse, a friend, or a sibling.
“It’s amazing how the nature of your relationships change when you're being love instead of trying to get love.” - Ram Dass
