Oct 02, 2013 02:32AM

Leading meditation teacher, Sharon Salzberg and Tibetan Buddhist scholar, Tenzin Robert Thurman will tackle the gold standard of spiritual topics from their new book Love Your Enemies, on October 14 at Friends Meetinghouse in Dupont Circle, D.C. Mixing ancient Buddhist wisdom, modern psychology and the latest neuroscience, they will address the real sources of rage and fear and offer practical solutions to finding inner peace and peaceful coexistence with the world.

“Including our enemies in the process of transformation is not only practical but liberating,” says Salzberg. Replacing anger with patience and moving away from self-centeredness and self-hatred are some of the methods they will share for “realizing a transformed life.” Presented by Grace Productions, in partnership with Politics and Prose Bookstore and the Shambhala Meditation Center of Washington, the event is offered to help Washingtonians increase their spiritual resilience for daily life and leadership in the nation’s capital.

Salzberg co-founded the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts and is the New York Times bestselling author of Lovingkindness, Faith and Real Happiness. Thurman, a professor at Columbia University, holds the first endowed chair in Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies in the United States and is author of Inner Revolution and numerous other books.

Friends Meetinghouse is located at 2111 Florida Ave., NW D.C. For tickets and advance book purchases, call 1-800-838-3006 or visit
