In the Buddhist tradition, faith is experienced as the healing power of the heart. During these times of global tension and confusion, we are called to find deeper inspiration as we face an uncertain future. We are invited to rediscover the clarity and fullness of heart that can only come from an abiding faith. Join IMS co-founder Sharon Salzberg in this exploration of faith, not as religious adherence or deference to an external authority, but as trust in our inner capacity for awareness and love, and as the truest recognition of the interconnected world in which we live. All who enroll receive 3 hours of video content as a gift from Sharon and IMS. If you would like to make an offering to the teacher, you may do so after you enroll.
