Real Happiness at Work with Sharon Salzberg (Rescheduled from January) Off-site at St. Lukes Lutheran Church, 800 W. 36th St., on the corner of 36th and Chestnut

 Meet the extraordinary Sharon Salzberg and explore a path to finding real happiness at work! Despite the many hours we tend to spend working, that arena of our lives may not be the source of greatSharon Salzbergfulfillment or meaning. We will look at the qualities that can turn that around, including mindfulness, compassion, resiliency, integrity, and open awareness, and learn practices that help cultivate each of these. Suitable for both new and experienced meditators, the evening will consist of guided meditations, talks and time for questions and answers, followed by a book signing.  


Sharon is an amazing teacher who founded the  Insight Meditation Society in Barre, MA over 30 years ago, along with Joseph Goldstein and Jack Kornfield. All who hear Sharon speak gain a sense peace and joy. She is so engaging and quite funny too! Please join us for this unique opportunity to be with Sharon. She will be signing copies of her new book, Real Happiness At Work, after her talk. (Only books purchased at breathe books will be signed. Please do not bring books from your collection or other bookstores as she will not be able to sign them.)

PLEASE give yourself EXTRA TIME to PARK. You do not need to pay the meters after 6 pm. Please drive through the side streets between Falls Road and Beach Avenue, Keswick, 37th Street up to 41st Street to find street parking. This is all within a four block walk of the venue at 36th and Chestnut. There are no parking lots but if you come early enough you will be able to park and stroll to the talk with Sharon. Thank you! Cost: $10 suggested donation
