Sharon Salzberg and Robert Thurman
Monday, Oct. 14 at 7 p.m.
Join renowned Buddhist teachers Sharon Salzberg and Robert Thurman for their only DC-area appearance celebrating their new book, Love Your Enemies. Mixing ancient Buddhist wisdom, modern psychology and the latest neuroscience, Salzberg and Thurman address an urgent need we have today: to overcome the real sources of our rage and fear and thereby find inner peace and peaceful coexistence with the world. Using their practical methods, including Shantideva’s advice on replacing anger with patience, we can transform our relationships with our outer, inner, secret and super-secret enemies.
Sharon Salzberg cofounded the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Mass., and is a New York Times bestselling author. She has written eight books, including Lovingkindness, Faith and Real Happiness. Tenzin Robert Thurman, a professor at Columbia University, holds the first endowed chair in Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies in the United States. The president and co-founder of Tibet House New York, he is the author of the bestselling book Inner Revolution and numerous other books, including Anger and Infinite Life.
