3 Practices to Help You Find Your Strength 1. Open Your Heart with Sharon Salzberg

We tend to show more compassion to others than to ourselves. While it can be easier for us to lend a shoulder or a kind word to a friend, it can be a lot harder to open ourselves up to receiving the same. In this guided meditation, Sharon Salzberg invites us to open our hearts to giving and receiving love and reminds us that there’s nothing special we must do to deserve love—the fact that we simply exist is more than enough.
