Real Love: The Art of Mindful Connection

A conversation with Sharon Salzberg and James Shaheen

Co-presented with Tricycle magazine.
Please note: This event takes place at JCC Manhattan in New York City.

Please join us to celebrate the publication of Sharon Salzberg’s new book, Real Love: The Art of Mindful Connection. Salzberg will be in conversation with her friend and colleague, James Shaheen, the editor of Tricycle magazine. They will take us on a tour of this new guide to living an awakened life in the 21st century, encouraging us to strip away layers of negative habits and obstacles and helping us to experience authentic love based on direct experience, rather than preconceptions. Salzberg’s new book will revolutionize what true connection and love may mean to you, and empower you with practical and creative tools to begin embodying that love.

The discussion will be followed by a small reception and book sales and signing.
