Join Sharon for BuddhaFest, for the first time ever is Los Angeles, CA on Saturday morning, June 3, 10:00 – 11:30 AM. Sharon’s talk unpacks the myths we have been taught about where strength lies, what makes us give up, who matters, and how alone we really are. This leads us to a fresh exploration of a clichéd word: love.
Love for oneself broadens our sense of possibility and builds a sense of inner resource, so we can more truly love another. This opens the door to the realization we can love all beings (recognize our lives are connected, wish them to be free) without feeling compelled to like them, approve of them, or cease challenging their actions. The presentation will include guided meditation and Q&A.
