UPDATED: Heart Practices for Challenging Times with Krishna Das and Bob Thurman

Friday, Mar 1, 2019 - Sunday, Mar 3, 2019

Important event update: 

Sharon Salzberg is unable to join us at Kripalu due to a situation with her health. We will miss her deep loving presence and pray that she will be able to join us again soon. We are very blessed to have Tenzin Bob Thurman joining us for the weekend. If you don’t know Bob, you are in for an incredible infusion of Joy and Wisdom. Bob is one of His Holiness H Dalai Lama’s oldest and dearest Western Disciples. He is a fountain of blissful wisdom. One of my favorite things in life is to sit and listen to his nectar-like words flow into my mind stream. See you soon.

In this program, Krishna Das and Sharon Salzberg dive into the Buddhist and Bhakti practices of the Wise Heart to help us open ourselves to love and spaciousness, no matter what. Together, these two friends and colleagues offer a lifetime of experience teaching practical, empowering tools to cultivate joy and equanimity.

Learn how to develop clarity and wise compassion through mindfulness and loving-kindness in this program, which also includes

  • Periods of teaching and discussion
  • Guided meditation
  • Call-and-response chanting
