Quest for Truth: A Conversation with Sharon Salzberg by Ben Painter and Jon Luke Tittmann
Last summer, motivated to learn what mindfulness really is, two iBme interns set out on a humble quest for truth and deeper understanding. On their second stop, they visited with Sharon Salzberg, co-founder of Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts, and author of Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness and A Heart as Wide as the World.
On a hot afternoon in New York City, they asked Sharon how she defines mindfulness and lovingkindness — and the difference between the two.

Retreat, practice, and connect with like-minded people. Mindfulness changes our relationships — with ourselves and with others. The experience of an iBme retreat is designed to take you into deeper levels of inner peace, equipping you with go-to skills when you are challenged, need to focus, want to perform your best. Our retreats also develop relational skills — listening, compassion, sharing what's real and true.
You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
iBme welcomes and celebrates human diversity in all forms regardless of race, color, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, ability, personal appearance, or religious/spiritual affiliation.
