Prema Yoga REAL LOVE Workshop


Sharon returns to Brooklyn to Prema Yoga for a Tuesday evening workshop on Real Love.

Fundamentally, there is only one kind of love– real love – trying to come more fully alive in us despite our limiting assumptions, the distortions of our culture, our sense of unworthiness,  and the habits of fear, self-condemnation and isolation we tend to acquire just by living a life.  Real love can manifest towards ourselves, towards another, towards all beings, and towards life itself. This workshop will explore the role of mindfulness and lovingkindness meditation practices in nurturing our capacity for real love. It will include a talk, practice periods, and Q&A. Suitable for new and experienced meditators.
