What Really Matters in a Spiritual Practice? A Conversation with Sylvia Boorstein and David Ingber
Please note: This event takes place at JCC Manhattan in New York City.
A spiritual practice teaches us that what really matters is healing our hearts, healing our relationships, and healing our planet. But how do we cultivate and live with open hearts in these difficult times? Can our practice help us see through the fog in our minds that is created by feelings of despair and clarify uncertainty about how to move forward? Along with the conversation, the evening will include time for practice and a discussion with the audience.
Sunday, September 10, 7:00-8:30pm
