Description of the Retreat: This one-of-a-kind weekend retreat with Krishna Das and Sharon Salzberg allows participants to delve deeper into the practice of kirtan chanting "The Name" and loving-kindness meditation practice. The workshops are segments of the program with Krishna Das and Sharon in which Krishna Das shares his own experiences about the spiritual path and his time with his Guru, Neem Karoli Baba, and Sharon will discuss her experience with meditation practice and how it can allow us to transform our worldview from one of isolation and confusion to one of connection, clarity and compassion.
