August 15th, 2024 - Thursday 8-9:30 PM PT - Heart As Wide As the World - Sharon Salzberg - Online

| /

Staying connected to what is most important to us when life feels confounding is a way of coming home to ourselves again and again. By grounding in our deepest wisdom, we can learn to navigate the ups and downs of life with an open heart. In the workshop, A Heart As Wide As The World, Sharon Salzberg offers stories and teachings from 50 years of meditation practice. Her teachings are a reminder of the “seamlessness of connection” and “unbounded heart” that are possible in everyday happenings. In celebration of the release of the 25th anniversary edition book, “Heart As Wide as the World,” originally published in 1999 from Shambhala Publications, this workshop includes discourse, question and response period, and guided meditation. Open to all.
