Rubin Museum – WORKING WITH ENEMIES – Meditation Workshop

Rubin Museum of ArtWe all must work with our enemies. An enemy, whether within (a habitual, painful mind state) or without (someone for whom we steadily feel antipathy or fear), marks the edge between limited lovingkindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, equanimity, and the potential boundlessness of these qualities.

In this two-hour workshop at the Rubin Museum, Sharon  will explore inner and outer enemies; look at the fear, anger, and anguish generated by being stuck in a mode of “us” and “them”; and focus on the potential for liberation.

The program will consist of dialogue, discourse, and meditation practice and is suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators.

Rubin Museum PERSON PLACE THING Talk with Randy Cohen

Rubin Museum of ArtMeditation teacher and Rubin regular Sharon Salzberg is invited by humorist Randy Cohen to talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are important to her.

PURCHASE TICKETS

Person Place Thing is an interview show based on the idea that people are particularly engaging when they speak, not directly about themselves, but about something they care about. The result: surprising stories from great talkers.


About the Speakers

Randy Cohen is an American writer and humorist known as the author of “The Ethicist” column in the New York Times Magazine between 1999 and 2011. The column was syndicated throughout the United States and Canada. Cohen is also known as the author of several books, a playwright, and the host of the public radio show Person Place Thing.

Sharon Salzberg was born in New York City in 1952 and experienced a childhood involving considerable loss and turmoil. An early realization of the power of meditation to overcome personal suffering determined her life direction. Her teaching and writing now communicates that power to a worldwide audience of practitioners. She offers non-sectarian retreat and study opportunities for participants from widely diverse backgrounds.

Rubin Museum LINEAGE CONVERSATION with Lama Tsomo

Rubin MuseumSharon Salzberg and Lama Tsomo discuss the ancient concept of lineage and why it might be helpful for contemporary Americans. From the points of view of their respective Buddhist lineages (Theravada and Vajrayana), the speakers will explore the range of mentoring relationships, from spiritual friend to guru, as a touchstone for lineage. What do you do if you have a practice but no teacher? What if you have neither but have a longing to be truly happy?

The discussion will be followed by Lama Tsomo leading a Tibetan compassion meditation called Tonglen, after which she will sign copies of her newly-released book Why Is the Dalai Lama Always Smiling?: A Westerner’s Introduction and Guide to Tibetan Buddhist Practice.

PURCHASE TICKETS

Tickets: $25.00
