Description

Today I’ll be talking with Sharon Salzberg, a true pioneer in the field of meditation and world-renowned meditation teacher, and the best-selling author of a brilliant book on meditation, “Real Happiness”

And that’s just what I want to talk with her about today, about how to use meditation for greater health, happiness, and grounding during this special time.  

Key Points Discussed:

  • Can we use meditation to help our health? (02:30 )
  • How she went to India in her earliest years to learn how meditation practice could be used to bring more happiness (02:58 )
  • The two wolves in terms of the fear that’s in the world right now (08:00 )
  • Meditation: Cultivating the ground so that those things we yearn for can emerge (09:42 )
  • What does concentration, mindfulness, love, and kindness have to do with meditation? (11:45 )
  • Decluttering our field of attention so that our perception of what’s going on in the moment is not so distorted by bias of some kind (13:54 )
  • Her first experience of meditation and the role that was played by sitting down and feeling her breathe (16:15 )
  • An exercise we can do to focus on breathe (19:16 )
  • Learning how to let go more gracefully and starting again more beautifully (24:15 )
  • What does it mean to you to look at ourselves with quiet eyes (26:39 )
  • Being afraid of the unknown more than we’re afraid of what we do know (32:06 )
