Insight LA – REAL LOVE – Daylong Workshop

Sharon returns to Insight LA for a daylong immersion on Real Love as part of her Real Love Book Tour in 2017. 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 core mindfulness and lovingkindness techniques, and other meditation exercises, Sharon Salzberg will guide participants 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 themselves, for their loved ones, for those they don’t know but with whom they share this planet — for all beings everywhere. Suitable for both new and experienced meditators, the course will consist of guided meditations, talks and time for questions and answers.
