Event Description

How Radical Compassion Will Change Your Life

With Sharon Salzberg and Robert A.F. Thurman

A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT SHARON SALZBERG: This will be our 10th BuddhaFest, and Sharon has been with us for every single one. Unfortunately, a recent health issue has forced Sharon to cancel her public appearances for several months. Therefore, rather than appearing with us in person, Sharon will participate from New York via livestream. We are grateful for this, and we hope you understand.

Join longtime friends and colleagues Sharon Salzberg and Robert A.F. Thurman for an evening exploring the path of compassionate action for difficult times.

These longtime Buddhist teachers explore the empowerment and liberation that is possible through the cultivation of fierce compassion, particularly when we encounter fear, anger and helplessness. 

Although it is frequently denigrated in our culture as simplistic and weak, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama is quoted saying, “compassion is the radicalism of our time.”

Sharon and Bob explore radical compassion as a form of personal agency from which we can engage critical wisdom and mindfulness in the most of challenging times of our lives. Learn practical tools to shift out of the adversarial mentality of "us" and "them.” Expand your circle of connection to include those outside your comfort zone. Skillfully navigate the burnout of the smartphone era for greater balance and self-care. 

Experience your innate capacity to embrace the whole world of experience, and the extraordinary freedom waiting to be found in the fiercely compassionate heart of the Buddha.
