Join Sharon Salzberg for a weekend retreat in Northern California at Multiversity 1440. The weekend focuses on Real Love: The Art of Mindful Connection. 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.
As William James wisely explained, “Our view of the world is truly shaped by what we decide to hear.” Join Vipassana meditation pioneer Sharon Salzberg and explore a gentle but thorough method to know yourself, connect with others, and stop your mind from getting in the way of the connection you yearn for.

Embark on a pathway towards more sustainable and authentic connection with a creative toolkit of mindfulness exercises and meditation techniques that guide you to strip away layers of habit to access a truer understanding of love.
