The Roanoke Mindfulness Conference 2016 is a one-day conference featuring Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Happiness at Work. Taking place at the Sheraton Roanoke Hotel & Conference Center, this conference is designed to provide participants with an introduction to the practice of mindfulness as well as a practical guide to improving work life through mindfulness, compassion, and ingenuity.
Dividing the idea of workplace satisfaction into eight pillars, we will explore ways in which to establish a deep and abiding experience of real happiness in the workplace. The cost for this event is $45, with a discount available for students. This price includes a boxed lunch.
Following the MINDFULNESS CONFERENCE in Roanoke, VA, an additional one-day workshop, focused on “Lovingkindness,” will take place on Thursday, September 29 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Unity Church of Roanoke Valley. Lovingkindness is a meditation that cultivates our natural capacity for an open and loving heart.
It is traditionally offered with meditations that enrich compassion and joy in the happiness of others, as well as deepen our own sense of peace. These practices lead to the development of concentration, connection, fearlessness, and genuine happiness. Sharon Salzberg will introduce these teachings and support us in our own experience and cultivation of these qualities through direct instruction and guided meditation using classical techniques in a modern idiom. There will also be opportunities for questions. This workshop is suitable for both new and experienced meditators. The cost for this event is $95, and includes a catered vegan lunch. Space is limited to 75 attendees.

Join renowned teachers Sharon Salzberg and Stephen Cope for a weekend of loving-kindness practice (metta meditation) and yoga. The Buddhist and yoga traditions both hold that it is possible to systematically cultivate feelings of loving-kindness, or what yoga philosophy refers to as “friendliness toward all beings.” These two great traditions each developed practices designed to promote the experiences of inner balance, happiness, and equanimity, as well as compassion (karuna) and sympathetic joy (mudita).
Experience on-the-mat yoga practice and sitting meditation that foster loving-kindness, along with an understanding of the importance of metta and yoga in the overall vision of the contemplative traditions. Sharon and Stephen cultivate a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, welcoming people at all levels of yoga and meditation experience, including beginners.
