Be The Love
This episode discusses the difference between mindfulness and meditation and explores some common myths about developing a meditation practice.
Sharon Salzberg and I discuss applying mindfulness to managing intrusive thoughts including perfectionistic judgments of self. Sharon offers some advice for people who are thinking about beginning a meditation practice. She also discusses lovingkindness meditation and how it differs from mindfulness in practice and function. Lastly, Sharon tells me about her new book, Real Love: The Art of Mindful Connection, which provides mindfulness exercises and meditation techniques to help us to create deeper love relationships with ourselves, our significant others, and all of life.
