Real Life: A Discussion with Sharon Salzberg
Wednesday, July 14th, 2021 | 7:00pm – 8:30pm ET


From Sharon Salzberg:

“Several times in the past, as I’ve been working on a new book, I’ve gathered with people at New York Insight to hear anecdotes, insights, and stories about a particular topic to include in my writing. This has made everything I have written broader, more inclusive, and richer in many ways. I am quite grateful for this contribution to my work.

Once again, I am working on a book, the title of which is Real Life. I would love to meet virtually once again with the New York Insight community to hear what comes up for you in your mind when you hear that title, Real Life. We’ll sit together, I’ll tell you what comes up in my mind as we explore the topic, and we will have a free discussion about whatever this provokes or opens for you.

This program is free and for New York Insight Circle of Friends members only – it will be a mutually beneficial creation of a community and an opportunity to be together and discuss things that we care about to support the institution. We hope to see you there.”
