Real Life: The Journey from Isolation to Openness and Freedom

No one is immune to the different seasons of life. Yet we are often ill-prepared to navigate these natural ups and downs with clarity and compassion. Our next book for our Mindful Book Group is the new book by world-renowned meditation expert Sharon Salzberg, Real Life: The Journey from Isolation to Openness and Freedom

In her new book, Sharon contemplates the skills needed to traverse the larger cycles of life, drawing from 40+ years of experience in the Buddhist tradition. Applying contemplative tools, we can learn to live more fearlessly― moving from constriction and isolation to a more spacious place of possibility, creativity, connection, and joy.

Starts February 9th
Sessions are held 2nd & 4th Fridays
at 1:00 pm ET/12:00 pm CT

We take one chapter per session in a meaningful manner.
