Sharon Salzberg, the teacher of Buddhism and meditation and bestselling author of Real Happiness, Lovingkindness, and more, has suffered what a new letter from Salzberg’s director of operations, Lily Cushman, describes as “a major health emergency this past weekend.”
From Cushman’s email:
She is now stable and on the path to a full recovery. She is receiving excellent medical care, and we are deeply grateful for all the amazing work and dedication of her doctors, nurses and hospital staff, it is truly remarkable.
To take care of her health, Sharon will be taking a few months off from teaching so that she has the time and space to heal completely. We will be updating her calendar of events to reflect these changes in the next day or so, and for those of you directly impacted by these cancellations, we thank you for your patience and understanding.
I know how many of you have a profoundly deep bond with Sharon, and that this message is not an easy one to read. Rest assured that she will be back in action in no time, and is surrounded by a tremendous support system during this time.
We at Lion’s Roar wish Sharon and all who know and love her our very best wishes for a speedy recovery.
