Just Breathe…

Mindfulness Conference Roanoke

The Roanoke Mindfulness Conference 2016 is a one-day conference featuring Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Happiness at Work. Taking place at the Sheraton Roanoke Hotel & Conference Center, this conference is designed to provide participants with an introduction to the practice of mindfulness as well as a practical guide to improving work life through mindfulness, compassion, and ingenuity.

Please Note: Sharon will be offering a daylong workshop on the day after the Conference – Complete Details HERE.


Practice the art of attention at the Rubin Museum in New York, NY in this weekly meditation session led by Sharon Salzberg and others from the New York Insight Meditation Center. Himalayan practitioners have, for centuries, used meditation to quiet the mind, open the heart, calm the nervous system, and increase one’s ability to focus. Now, western scientists, business leaders, and the secular world have embraced meditation as a vital tool for brain health.

Whether you’re a brand-new beginner, a dabbler, or a skilled meditator seeking the company of others, join expert teachers in a 45-minute weekly program designed to fit into your lunch break. Each session will be inspired by a different work of art from the Rubin Museum’s collection, and will include an opening talk, a 20-minute sitting session, and a closing discussion. Chairs will be provided. Cost: $15 or FREE for Museum Members.

Presented in partnership with the New York Insight Meditation Center.

Limited seating; tickets required for all participants.
