Sharon Salzburg at London Insight Meditation (Saturday)

We all live our lives searching for a sense of belonging, whether consciously or unconsciously. Yet we often find ourselves feeling cut off and alone. What holds us back from connecting with one another or with our core emotional needs?

In this workshop Sharon Salzberg will explore the art of mindful connection; with ourselves, one another and all of life. Give your heart a much-needed opportunity to connect to the truest experience of love in your daily life. Together we will look at how we might:

  • Dispel cultural and emotional habits that are obstacles to connection.
  • Direct focused care and attention to reclaim the essence of what it is to love and be loved.
  • Experience authentic love based on direct experience rather than preconceptions.

This workshop is suitable for both new and experienced meditators. The format will include teachings, periods of guided mindfulness and lovingkindness meditations, discussion and opportunities for questions. 

The theme is the same for both days of this workshop but the content will be different. It's fine, therefore to attend either or both days.
