Sharon Salzberg is a remarkable meditation teacher and author, cofounder of the Insight Meditation Society (IMS) in Barre, Massachusetts, and has played a crucial role in bringing Asian meditation practices to the West. The ancient Buddhist practices of vipassana (mindfulness) and metta (lovingkindness) are the foundations of her work. She is especially known for her groundbreaking book, Loving Kindness.

In her latest book, Love Your Enemies, co-written with Robert Thurman, she draws on ancient spiritual wisdom, modern psychology, and the latest neuroscience to guide us in dealing with troublesome people and situations, and overcoming the real source of our distress, which is our deep-seated self-centeredness and self-hatred. She offers practical methods for transforming our relationship to our outer, inner, secret, and super-secret enemies.
