In this immersive episode, Sharon Salzberg shares the journey of her spiritual life with the host of Meditative Story, Rohan Gunatillake.

This episode was originally aired on Meditative Story, a podcast that combines the emotional pull of first-person storytelling with the immediate, science-backed benefits of mindfulness practice – all surrounded by breathtaking and cinematic music. You can find Meditative Story on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and more!

Sharon Salzberg shares her story:

  • Sharon’s first trip to India
  • How disappointments and discomforts can lead to self-discovery
  • Being kind to ourselves and allowing slip-ups to happen
  • The initial meeting of Sharon Salzberg and Joseph Goldstein
  • Goenka’s non-verbal advice to Sharon and how laughter can release fear and anger
  • Reorienting ourselves when we veer off course
  • A guided meditation

"It will take a while before I learn that the skillful response to feeling anger is to feel it, and then, even to take an interest in it. I don’t have to let it carry me into action that I may regret. I already feel the lesson that life is teaching me over and over again: we all face challenges. It’s how we become who we are. You don’t have to judge yourself all the time. Give yourself a break.” – Sharon Salzberg
