    Humorous, down-to-earth guidance and insight
    I’ve been listening to the early episodes on repeat during the pandemic and feel like I’ve received a masterclass in meditation practice. Thank you Sharon for all you’ve given the world!

    Sharon’s book “Faith” and healing from my stroke
    I was given “Faith” a few years ago and I enjoyed Sharon’s warm, honest descriptions of her journey. Then I had a stroke. Over the past four years I’ve relied on this book to help me regain my footing. I listen to Sharon’s guided meditations to help me focus as I meditate - we know it helps to heal your brain! And now I’ve found this podcast! Sharon, my teacher, I cannot express my deepest, most heartfelt gratitude for you. You are a cherished and vital part of my healing. I hope you know how you have helped me recover my life. So much love for you!

    This podcast is ENLIGHTENING
    I am grateful to Sharon & friends for putting out this excellent podcast. It’s truly assisting my fledgling practice. I had a long term practice years ago and I drifted away. Now I am back as a beginner again and podcasts like these along with the numerous videos on youtube red are keeping my from going berserk during what seems like a super bizarre national nervous breakdown. Thanks to all you bodhisattva practitioners who have worked diligently to bring this wonderful information to light. 😊 🙏🏼

    Sharon Salzburg I'm sure doesn't know that she's acted as my personal meditation coach the whole first year I meditated. Her guided meditations continue to be the corner stone of my practice. These interviews are a great way to reinforce all the mindfulness work I've done. Thank you, Sharon!

    Sharon is great Narrator is Not
    Sharon is excellent but the introduction is unnecessary and extraneous. Sadly, I think his intro is more for him than for the listener.

    Sharon Rules
    Sharon is super down to earth but also possesses sky-like wisdom. In short, Sharon is AWESOME!
    Sharon makes it easy.
    IMO She is the best American Meditation teacher on the planet.

    I search for Sharon on podcast interviews because when I run, I love to listen to her wise words. Things happen all day long and it has gotten to a point where I will hear my heart repeating some phrase such as "begin again", or "I did a stupid thing, but Im not stupid, begin again". Learning from this podcast helps in everyday life. Thank you for this opportunity to cultivate compassion , kindness and mindfulness in a pragmatic way.
