Loving-Kindness with Sharon Salzberg
U of M St Paul Campus Student Center
St Paul, MN
Share this event:


Lovingkindness is a meditation that cultivates our natural capacity for an open and loving heart. It is traditionally offered with meditations that enrich compassion, and joy in the happiness of others, and also deepen our own sense of peace. These practices lead to the development of concentration, connection, fearlessness, and genuine happiness.

Sharon Salzberg will introduce these teachings and support us in our own experience and cultivation of these qualities through direct instruction and guided meditation using classical techniques in a modern idiom. There will also be opportunities for questions. This workshop is suitable for both new and experienced meditators.  This is a two day workshop, on October 5 and October 6.

Sharon will also be presenting a public talk on Friday, October 4, 2013 at 7 PM on Real Happiness.  You can find more information and register at: http://realhappiness.brownpapertickets.com

About Sharon Salzberg
