Real Love Bringing the Path of Mindfulness to Your Real-World Relationships

For new and experienced meditators.

Join pioneering meditation teacher Sharon Salzberg to explore the role of mindfulness and loving-kindness meditation practices in nurturing your capacity for real love.

Sharon believes that fundamentally, there is only one kind of love—real love—that is trying to become more fully alive inside us despite limiting assumptions, distortions of culture, our sense of unworthiness, and the habits of fear, self-condemnation, and isolation we acquire just by living our lives.

In a program that includes a talk, practice periods, and time for Q&A, learn to bring the path of mindfulness to your real-world relationships and discover how real love can manifest toward yourself, others, and life itself.
