Last Tuesday Open House Salon Series: The Sayong’s “Lost Art of Good Conversation”

Every last Tuesday of the month, Sitting at 7:00pm, Reading and discussion, 7:45-9pm (tea and snacks provided)

Join us every 4th Tuesday of the month at Open House to read, share and enjoy The Lost Art of Good Conversation.

We will start our first meeting on January 23rd by watching the Sakyong’s book tour talk, “Meditation is a Conversation with Ourselves.”  In this talk, he gives us guidance and inspiration for how we talk to ourselves. He also guides us through a powerful exercise to help us connect with the heart to others while they speak.

Each week we will read a chapter and reinvigorate our human connection through genuine conversation.

Each salon is a stand-alone topic and you are welcome to join us any time.

Suggested donation: $5

About The Lost Art of Good Conversation

In a world of smart phones and connectivity, we are all in constant touch with one another. So why are so many people feeling burned out, distant from colleagues, and abandoned by family and friends.

The Lost Art of Good Conversation is a journey to help us get back to the basics—to a life in which we are fully present and connected to ourselves and others. Using the principles of Shambhala tradition—meditation and a belief in the inherent wisdom, compassion and courage of all beings—Sakyong Mipham explains to readers how to listen and speak more mindfully and effectively to loved ones, coworkers, strangers and even ourselves.
