There is a strong relationship between our ability to love and our inner body of channels, chakras, and prana.

Chakras and energy channels
The great meditation classics of India and Tibet describe a special type of prana, or inner wind, which we can learn to direct through our body in order to bring our mind out of this subtle wandering and return it to sharp, single-pointed focus. In these four days of teaching at Diamond Mountain Retreat Center, Geshe Michael Roach will take us on an exploration through the nature of these subtle meditation obstacles, and inner techniques to overcome them by moving the prana through our channels and chakras.

Deep down we all want to love, and to be loved. And it’s two kinds of love we want. First of all, we would like someone that we can spend our life with – someone who is all the things we are looking for, who will stay with us and always continue to be a joy. At the same time we hunger for a higher kind of love. We feel almost a responsibility to love everyone around us, but sometimes we don't know how we can. And there certainly seems to us that there is a big distance between the two kinds of love. We don't see how love for our partner could take us to that higher kind of love, for everyone around us. It's a surprise to hear that the Yoga Sutra, written almost 2,000 years ago, has an answer for finding both kinds of love. Read More
