Open Heart Retreat
April 5–8, 2013
One could say that the point of spiritual practice is to open one’s heart. Yet this is so difficult for everyone. It is easier to study gentleness and courage than it is to practice them. During this program, we will examine what keeps our hearts closed – in relationships, towards life, and most of all, toward ourselves. Join Shambhala teacher and founder of the Open Heart Project, Susan Piver, for a weekend of meditation practices, journaling, small group dialogue and an exploration of ways we can bring our raw and tender hearts home to the world of family, politics, work, and love.
Susan Piver is a New York Times bestselling author of five books and a frequent contributor to Shambhala Sun. Her latest book is The Wisdom of a Broken Heart. Susan has been authorized to teach meditation in the Shambhala lineage since 2006.
Financial aid is available for this program.
