Finding Peace in Challenging Times with Sharon Salzberg

This is a practice for difficult times like ours—one of conflict, frustration, and uncertainty.

Finding peace is about meeting life, no matter what arises, with an open and responsive heart. It is a steadiness of mind and a calm understanding that allows us to be with the constantly changing and shifting landscape of our world. Peace does not mean indifference or apathy, rather it is a spaciousness of mind that empowers loving-kindness and compassion and reminds us that we are, in truth, not as alone as we sometimes feel. Here is an exclusive look at Sharon’s talk “Find Peace in Challenging Times” from our 2021 Mindfulness for Healthcare Summit.
