Sharon Salzberg is one of America’s leading spiritual teachers and is co-founder of the Insight Meditation Society (IMS) in Massachusetts. She played a key role in bringing Asian meditation practices to the Western world. The foundations of her teaching are the ancient Buddhist practices of vipassana (which is mindfulness) and metta (which is lovingkindness). She’s author of many excellent books including ‘loving kindness’, ‘the power of meditation’ and ‘real happiness’.

In this fascinating interview, Sharon talks about how she learnt about meditation, practical ways of managing difficult emotions, the importance of loving kindness practice and a lovely story about her meeting with the Dalai Lama.
