The Frederick P. Lenz Foundation Distinguished Guest Lecturer Program in Buddhist Studies and American Culture and Values: "Real Happiness at Work" with Sharon Salzberg


Sharon SalzbergThursday, April 3 at 7:00 p.m.

Nalanda Events Center, Nalanda Campus, 6287 Arapahoe Ave., Boulder

In this talk, we will explore a path to finding real happiness at work. Despite the many hours we tend to spend working, that arena of our lives may not be a source of great fulfillment or meaning. We will look at the qualities that can turn that around, including mindfulness, compassion, resiliency, integrity, and open awareness, and learn practices that help cultivate each of these. Suitable for both new and experienced meditators, the evening will consist of guided meditations, a lecture, and time for questions and answers.


The Frederick P. Lenz Foundation for American Buddhism promotes the benefits of Zen Buddhism, meditation, yoga, and related Buddhist practices in a manner complementary to modern American society. Past Lenz Foundation Distinguished Lecturers at Naropa University have included Meredith Monk, Gary Snyder, Joanna Macy, Paula Green, Jan Willis, and Roshi Pat Enkyo O'Hara. In addition to the lecture series, the foundation also provides support for the Frederick P. Lenz Foundation Residential Fellowship for Buddhist Studies and American Culture and Values, an opportunity for faculty and other professionals planning sabbaticals to spend a semester on the Naropa University campus conducting a research, social action, or other project that relates Buddhist philosophy and practice to an aspect of American culture and values.
