Meet Sharon Salzberg
In this video, Sharon introduces herself and shares a glimpse of the journey we'll take together.
Hi, I'm Sharon Salzberg. And for those of you who don't know me, I'm a meditation teacher and author. I've been meditating since January of 1971. I started teaching in 1974, co-founded the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts.
I'd like to invite you to this online course about the journey from isolation and contraction to openness, connection, and freedom.
Real Life is the story of a journey, the journey we all take, I think, all people who are seeking freedom in all times. We start out feeling ourselves to be more or less trapped and unable to see beyond the narrow confines of what we're experiencing right now. And we can't quite breathe freely. It's a journey from there to connection, openness, expansion, and seeing possibility. This is a journey we take. It's not make-believe or fanciful. This is the journey we take and we don't have to take it feeling all alone. You don't have to make this journey feeling so completely uncertain about this step or the next. We have every possibility of having community and a sense of joyful discovery and wisdom as we go along this path.
So here's an offering to bring all these elements together in your path.
