Real Love: Buddhist & Bhakti Practices of the Heart

Thursday, Sep 21, 2017 - Sunday, Sep 24, 2017

Join Krishna Das, Sharon Salzberg, and guest teacher Robert Thurman, for a weekend immersion exploring a world of great possibility in Real Love: The Power of the Loving Heart. These two friends and colleague bring a lifetime of experience nurturing a greater capacity for love rooted in both the Buddhist and Bhakti traditions. In this weekend retreat, they offer practical tools and techniques to learn to distinguish between the skillful habits that lead to awareness and deeper connection, and the unskillful habits that reinforce our sense of separation.

Whether consciously or unconsciously, we all live our lives searching for a sense of belonging, yet still find ourselves feeling cut off and alone. What holds us back from connecting to ourselves, to our core emotional needs – as well as to one another and to our individual and shared experiences alike? What keeps us from realizing our essential need for real love? Complimentary chanting and meditation practices allows us to reach into our hearts, open them, and take risks by breaking free of the limits and expectations of love we usually carry. In doing so, we create a spacious balance of mind that allows us a more direct, experiential relationship with love. Join us for an immersive weekend to explore the magnitude of the heart and the transformative power of love within us.
