Sharon Salzberg at Garrison REAL LOVE RETREAT with Ethan Nichtern @ Garrison Institute

Love and Relationship. It’s a topic that Buddhist teachings often speak of, yet in the modern culture we are often left to our own devices to put our meditative tools to the test in friendship, romantic partnership, difficult family dynamics, and work life. Join friends and colleagues, Sharon Salzberg and Ethan Nichtern for a weekend retreat exploring the many aspect of Real Love.

How do we navigate the complexities of our own needs and desires with the needs of others? Can we really love someone we don’t agree with? What skills do we have to face the inevitable disappointments in relationship? Both Sharon and Ethan offer unique insight from a lifetime of meditation experience – and both are currently writing their next books on the topic of love! Join them for a transformational weekend that will change the way you think about love. Weekend includes formal guided meditation, contemplation, and dialogue.
