This is an excerpt from the Tibet House US Member Archive recording of the “Real Love: Annual Dharma + Yoga Retreat” with Sharon Salzberg & Robert A.F. Thurman held in Phoenicia, New York at Menla January, 2017.

Love is one of those overused words whose meanings has been diminished. We say “I love my frozen yogurt.” It is a word whose essence we stand to recapture. It has such a power. We don’t just focus us on ourselves, our kids, our partners or humanitarian tragedies in the world. It’s so much bigger and interconnected.
