“Real Love”

An evening talk and discussion with guest teacher Sharon Salzberg

Thursday, October 12th, 2017 | 6pm-8pm

Program Fee: $45, registration is required

To love ourselves, we must know ourselves. To love one another, we must know one another. But our assumptions, distractions, fears, expectations, and personal sense of unworthiness obscure these kernels of truth.

We yearn for connection with others — but our minds get in the way, constantly spinning judgments about how we are fundamentally alienated from one another. As William James wisely explained, “Our view of the world is truly shaped by what we decide to hear.”

However, we can train ourselves to change, to “hear” more of what is out there – and to “listen” less to our limiting and often self-condemning thoughts along the way.

With core mindfulness and lovingkindness techniques, and other meditation exercises, Sharon Salzberg will guide participants through the process of seeing through layers of habit – whether rooted in fear, self-condemnation or other mental conditioning –to find a truer meaning of love for themselves, for their loved ones, for those they don’t know but with whom they share this planet — for all beings everywhere.

Suitable for both new and experienced meditators, the evening will consist of guided meditations, a talk and time for questions and answers.

A copy of Sharon’s newest book Real Love is included in the registration price.
