Sharon Salzberg is one of the most esteemed teachers of meditation in the world. As co-founder of the Insight Meditation Society, she’s credited as one of the founding three who introduced Buddhist practices to mainstream Western culture in the 1970s — its psychological acuity, contemplative depths, and practical tools for living.
