How Meditation and Mindfulness Can Help You Add More REAL Love and Happiness to Your Life, with Sharon Salzberg
When I started learning about meditation a couple of years ago, today’s guest was a name I kept hearing over, and over, and over again. Sharon Salzberg is one of the most prominent figures in the field on meditation and a world-renowned teacher, as well as a New York Times bestselling author with 10 books. Sharon has played a crucial role in bringing mediation and mindfulness practices to the West and into mainstream culture since 1974. My favorite thing about Sharon is her focus on love, and how meditation can help us love more deeply and more often for both ourselves and everyone else in our lives.
In this interview we talk about Sharon’s traumatic past, which led her to look for tools to help her heal and eventually led her to mediation. We also talk about what mindfulness even is and why most people who think they’re bad at mediation are wrong. Of course, she shares how to do it the right way and if you stick around until the end of this episode, you’ll even get to hear Sharon lead us in an exclusive loving-kindness meditation. This will add more peace, joy and love to your day – in a matter of just minutes.
