Sharon Salzberg, is a NYT best selling author, and has been teaching meditation around the world for over 40 years. She studied the art in India & Asia in the early 70’s; and upon her return to the US in 1974 she cofounded the Insight Meditation Society, in Barre Massachusetts, with fellow meditation teachers Jack Kornfield & Joseph Goldstein.

During my own meditation studies, I was blessed with the opportunity to learn from Ms. Salzberg; and I am eternally grateful for her guidance and the wisdom she shared.

In the excerpt below, is from Ms Salzberg’s article “Sit”. She originally wrote it back in 2002 for “O” Magazine. In it, Ms. Salzberg draws upon her years of experience to help others get started in meditation. I hope you enjoy it!

Keep up with your practice! And May your days always be filled with love, happiness, & peace,
