Sharon Salzberg—Love Your Enemies (Really!)
Thursday, June 23, 2016
Big Question: How can I nurture my creative gifts?
 
Sharon Salzberg has taught meditation for more than 30 years. She’s the cofounder of the Insight Meditation Society, the Forest Refuge, and the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies. Her work is based on the practices of mindfulness and Mettalovingkindness—to cultivate love and compassion for ourselves and others. It all sounds wonderful, right? There’s this small problem: enemies. Jesus said, “Love your enemies.” But how? How do we break through our anger, hatred, and fear and touch that true Metta place? And if we did, if we actually loved our enemies … what would happen?
