Program Description

Martin Luther King, Jr. famously paraphrased the Dhammapada in saying "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." And while these words ring truer than ever, it is a tremendous undertaking to walk through life in an open and loving way.

Join two spiritual leading lights, Sharon Salzberg, the pioneer who brought meditation to the West, and Omid Safi, PhD, renowned expert in contemporary Islamic thought and spirituality, for a weekend immersion into the Path of the Courageous Heart.

Through guided meditation, talks, and discussion with these two spiritual masters, you will learn:

  • The essential skills of mindfulness and lovingkindness practice to embrace yourself more fully and connect with your core values
  • How to debunk cultural and personal myths keeping us in the shadows of life
  • To see through layers of habit to find an embodied understanding of courage
  • How to engage in the world with skillful action, in all situations.

Drawing from their respective traditions of Islamic Mysticism and Buddhism, Sharon and Omid bring a unique approach to the unfolding path of awakened living in polarizing times. Leave fortified, openhearted, and ready to love your way through the truths of the here and now.
