Shambhala NYC – REAL LOVE – Weekend Retreat w Ethan Nichtern

Shambhala New York

Join Sharon and Ethan Nichtern for a non-residential retreat weekend retreat in New York City at Shambhala NYC. Sharon and Ethan will guide us through the process of seeing through layers of habit – whether rooted in fear, self-condemnation or other mental conditioning – to find a truer meaning of love – for ourselves, our loved ones, for everyone we don’t know but with whom we share this planet – for all beings everywhere.

.REGISTER

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. We yearn for connection with others — but our minds get in the way, constantly spinning judgments about how we are fundamentally alienated from one another. With our mindfulness practice, we can train ourselves to listen more to what is out there, and to less of what our limiting and self-condemning thoughts are saying.

From one of the world’s foremost experts on loving-kindness meditation comes the best-selling book, REAL LOVE: The Art of Mindful Connection by Sharon Salzberg. Real Love is a field guide for anyone seeking awakened living in the 21st century. It’s designed to revolutionize what true connection and love mean to you, and empower you with practical and creative tools to embody it. Based on the teachings and exercises in this book, Sharon Salzberg, alongside friend and colleague Shastri Ethan Nichtern, have built a program consisting of core mindfulness and loving-kindness techniques suitable for both new and experienced meditators.

MNDFL Brooklyn – WHAT IS MINDFULNESS – Workshop

Sharon returns to MNDFL Brooklyn speaking on the topic of Mindfulness. These days the word “mindfulness” gets thrown around a lot. Whole Foods even carries “Mindful Mayonnaise.” But what does it mean? We think this an important thing to get a handle on as people are spreading it around like our favorite condiment.
