Love and Relationship. It’s a topic that Buddhist teachings often speak of, yet in the modern culture we are often left to our own devices to put our meditative tools to the test in friendship, romantic partnership, difficult family dynamics, and work life. Join friends and colleagues Sharon Salzberg and Ethan Nichtern for a lively evening of discussion, practice and teaching on this ever-relevant topic!
How do we navigate the complexities of our own needs and desires with the needs of others? Can we really love someone we don’t agree with? What skills do we have to face the inevitable disappointments in relationship? Both Sharon and Ethan offer unique insight from a lifetime of meditation experience – and both are currently writing their next books on the topic of love!
This open house is a great introduction to the Shambhala Buddhist teachings and an opportunity to connect with other practitioners. It features meditation practice, a talk by one of our senior teachers, discussion, and a reception. Meditation instruction is also provided.
The dharma gathering is an opportunity to meditate in a supportive group setting, to learn about how to apply the principles of meditation to everyday life, and to meet and mingle with fellow practitioners. Bring your friends!
