How does love resonate in our lives? And how does the experience of connection—felt through a song, a meditative moment, or a conversation—ease feelings of isolation, anger, or envy? Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Rosanne Cash and best-selling author and meditation teacher Sharon Salzberg sit down together to consider creativity as an expression of love in our relationship with ourselves, with others, and with life itself. The talk celebrates the release of Salzberg’s new book, Real Love: The Art of Mindful Connection, and will be followed by a book signing.
