Sharon Salzberg played a crucial role in bringing Asian meditation practices to the West. After studying with teachers in India, Burma, and Tibet, she co-founded the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachustts. A meditation teacher for more than three decades, Salzberg is a popular speaker at a wide variety of retreats and writes regularly in publications and on the Internet.
“Practicing Spirituality with Sharon Salzberg” is a 40-part e-course led by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat. Each day you will receive an email with a short selection from one of Salzberg’s books and a suggestion for how you can practice the concept during the day.
The emails discuss how to apply her teachings on lovingkindness, compassion, generosity, equanimity, peace, and love, as well as some of the more subversive spiritual activities of the heart, such as rejoicing in another’s happiness and being compassionate toward those who cause pain. Several cover Salzberg’s creative interpretations of faith, a spiritual practice not often dealt with by Buddhists.
(6 CEHs for Chaplains available.)
