PBS recently released excepts from an insightful interview they conducted with meditation teacher Sharon Salzberg, founder of the Insight Meditation Society, in which she discusses how her meditation retreat center helps people to learn how to be more authentic by turning within.
She believes by clearing away the clutter and confusion produced by habits and fears that a person has the opportunity to see what’s really going on. When people learn neither to be overcome by emotions, nor struggle against them, they become in touch with themelves. If people are constantly in battle with themselves there is no place for wisdom.
