About

The theme of this course is love. We explore questions such as: What is love? How is it gained and how is it lost? What is love's effect on actions? Is it universal or limited?

As in previous terms, the group is asked neither to accept or reject what is presented but rather to test and verify it in the light of their own experience.

We open with the proposition that everyone has pure love in their nature. We explore the difference between pure and impure love. Pure love untainted by selfishness, unrestricted by any sense of limit.
Pure love also within oneself. Love is conducive to a full, rich and inclusive life; selfishness results in a small and exclusive life.

With pure love there is stillness, the heart is at rest. We explore the need to look beyond appearances to understand the true nature of ourselves and others.
