Dinner & Retreat with Sharon
April 14th & 15th
**Dinner with Sharon is now SOLD OUT - we have a few spots left for the retreat Saturday**
Join us for an EXTRAORDINARY chance to have dinner with Sharon Salzberg, one of the top meditation teachers in the country.
Then enjoy an urban retreat with Sharon and the INCREDIBLE opportunity to learn from her years of collected wisdom about how to live with more love — in every area of your life — RIGHT before her new book Real Love: The Art of Mindful Connection is released.
This is a unique opportunity to spend time with Sharon, a New York Times bestselling author and co-founder of the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, MA, just before the book launch takes her on a speaking tour around the world.
On this retreat you'll learn how to strip away negative habits. Let go of obstacles. And change your relationships at work and in your personal life. What's the upshot? After this time with Sharon you'll feel free. Unblocked. More productive and efficient — so you have more time to ENJOY life.
The wisdom Sharon will share is not obvious. She's spent the past few YEARS researching and writing this book.
It's not just about romantic love. It's about love for friends and family. Love for life. And for ourselves.
The book comes out in June. She'll be touring then.
But WE get something special. A first look. At the wisdom she's bursting to share.
And so we are THRILLED to invite you to join us for dinner and a retreat with Sharon in celebration of the launch of her new book Real Love: The Art of Mindful Connection.
On Friday April 14th join us for a fun, social dinner party with wisdom, too. Sharon will lead us in a Jewish Buddhist non-denominational vegan seder (yes really)! Whether you’ve attended seder your whole life or have no idea what it is, (it's a traditional Passover meal), you’ll enjoy our spin on this special meal. Our friends at Primary are hosting us, so we'll be in a beautiful, lush environment perfect for building good energy. Drinks are also included, but we ask that you buy an advance copy of Sharon's book to join us. In this way we support Sharon and the launch of her book!
On Saturday April 15th join us for a "Day of Love" retreat with Sharon at cozy beautiful Neuehouse. We'll learn from Sharon, enjoy sitting and walking meditations, Q&As, and socialize, too. If attending, we again ask that you buy an advance copy of Sharon's book so we can support her launch and the mission behind this new work.

The Praise of Real Love
"Salzberg shows us how to experience love not as an emotion, not as the byproduct of a particular romantic or familial relationship, but as an ability, that all of us can cultivate. This book has the power to set your heart at peace.” ―Susan Cain, author of Quiet
"Sharon Salzberg is an amazing teacher, and her words and inspiration in Real Love illuminate the way to love wisely, a treasure for your heart." ―Jack Kornfield, author of A Path With Heart
"In a most lively and inspiring way Sharon Salzberg shows that unconditional love―for ourselves, for our dear ones, for all sentient beings―is naturally present within our hearts." ―Matthieu Ricard, author of Altruism: The Power of Compassion to Change Yourself and the World
"Sharon Salzberg is the superstar of lovingkindness meditation. No one has done more to spread this powerful method for kindling universal love in our hearts." ―Daniel Goleman
