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.
