1440 Multiversity – REAL LOVE – Weekend Retreat

March 16, 2018 - March 18, 2018

1440 Multiversity Logo

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.


Retreat Details

Whether you are a new or experienced meditator, you will benefit from explorations of:

    • Core mindfulness and lovingkindness techniques and other meditation exercises
    • How to move out of constantly spinning judgments about how we are fundamentally alienated from one another
    • Guided meditations, talks, and time for questions and answers to dig deeper into the teachings
    • Self-training techniques for learning how to “hear” more of what is out there and to “listen” less to limiting and often self-condemning thoughts along the way
    • How to find a truer meaning of love for yourself, for your loved ones, for those you don’t know but with whom you share this planet—for all beings everywhere.

Be guided through the process of seeing through layers of habit, be they rooted in fear, self-condemnation, or other mental conditioning. Become more present and begin to experience real love—love based on direct interactions, rather than preconceptions. We all yearn for connection, yet often feel trapped by feelings of isolation, anger, or envy—learn how to redefine limited definitions of “love” to connect more deeply with yourself, others, and life itself. 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.
