About the Event


Open Heart, Open Mind
Tsoknyi Rinpoche with Sharon Salzberg

We all want and need the capacity to love and be loved unconditionally.  We also seek the understanding and insight to work confidently with the challenges in our modern busy lives. In Open Heart Open Mind, Tsoknyi Rinpoche speaks of:  “a spark of unparalleled brilliance, an unlimited capacity for warmth, openness, and courage, or ‘essence love’. Timeless and imperishable, essence love is often  layered over by patterns of behavior and belief that  urge us to seek happiness in conditions or situations that never quite live up to their promise.”  Rinpoche provides a bridge between ancient wisdom and modern life, and encourages each of us to rediscover the openness, fearlessness, and love that are the essence of our own life.
