Send your answer and location to email@example.com Buddhism helped me understand the nature of impermanence and heal from my marriage ending. When I began dating again, it helped me love people for exactly who they are. I was no longer tied to the notion that only people and circumstances outside of my control could make me happy. I began being happy for myself. Buddhism has made me a better partner. —Rob Bonstin, Oakland My whole life is informed by the dharma, including my dating and romantic relationships. The first principle is impermanence, brought home to me when my husband died. While attending an empowerment in Hong Kong, I met a man during the lunch break and we started dating. We use Sanskrit or Pali words to communicate about suffering and its causes. —Suzanne Scollon, Freeland, Washington What is a precious gift we can give to the Buddha? What is a precious gift we can give our lover? It might be a feeling: When our lover enters the room, when we feel our lover’s intention, when we ponder our lover’s touch. Those feelings rise like a waxing moon, filling our body with delight. —Ken Norquay, Vancouver, Canada Buddhism informs my love life because I believe my partner should complement my contentment in life, not be the missing puzzle piece. Real love is never about what I can get from another person, but what I can give to another person. —Brittney Chantele, Pittsburgh Meditation practice and “non-grasping” have helped me to let go of the fiery arguments my wife and I could engage in. Walk away first, and then come back when calm has returned. —Matt Jardine, London, England Love Life? What love life?! Jokes aside, I’m learning about a greater love than the self, and, paradoxically, self-love seems to be a byproduct of that. —Erin D’Ambrosio, Minneapolis Meditations on attachment are a home base for me as I work to love someone so that they feel free. —Sierra Schneider, Julian, California I read a lot about attachment and I practice dissolving my ego. It helps tremendously! Life is smoother sailing this way. —Anita Hussey, Ottawa Trainings & Retreats in Santa Fe, New Mexico ENTIRE CALENDAR, TEACHINGS, AND MORE AT UPAYA.ORG SANTA FE, NM 505-986-8518 ext. 112 REGISTRAR@UPAYA.ORG january 3 - Ffebruary 1 Winter Pr actice Period: Sitting and Walking as Bodhisattvas Sensei J yrnes, M ozan Palevsky Ffebruary 8 - 10 Five Hundred Years of Haiku R oan Halifax, Sensei Kaz T Natalie Goldberg, Clark Strand Ffebruary 12 - 17 Sesshin: Heart Sutra for Bodhisattvas Sensei Kaz T Sensei S alma Fmarch 8 - 10 g.r.a.c.e.®: Training in Cultivating Compassion-based Interactions R oan Halifax, P A ack, MD; Cynda Hylton R AAN Upaya Founder, R oan Halifax LION’S ROAR | NOVEMBER 2018 19 CULTURE • LIFE • PRACTICE
