Explore the magnitude of the heart and the transformative power of love in a weekend immersion with Krishna Das and Sharon Salzberg, each of whom brings a lifetime of experience nurturing a greater capacity for love. These two friends, rooted in the bhakti and Buddhist traditions, offer practical tools and techniques to help you cultivate awareness, deeper connection, and a loving heart.
What keeps you from realizing your essential need for love? If you want to connect with yourself, others, and your core emotional needs, the chanting and meditation practices offered in this retreat encourage you to open your heart and break free of limits and expectations. This creates a spacious balance of mind and allows you to have a more direct, experiential relationship with love.
