I want to help you bring mindfulness off the cushion and into every part of your life.

Welcome! I am a NY Times bestselling author, meditation teacher, and speaker. Whether I’m writing books, leading retreats, or giving keynote presentations, everything I offer you is about sharing what I have learned in more than two decades of Buddhist practice so that you can apply these profound lessons in everyday life. I want to help you figure out how to bring more love, wisdom, and confidence to your relationships, work, and creative aspirations.
Meditation is the key. It is so much more than a life-hack, y’all! Though it has been scientifically proven that meditation can help you manage stress, communicate more effectively, and become a better leader/basketball player/parent, an ongoing meditation practice offers even more than that. It is a path to love. It is a way to figure out who you are and become genuine in every moment of your life. It is a path to transformation. Thank you for all the rad intel, science, but major thanks must also go to 2500 years of vast Buddhist insight into the nature of truth, meaning, and joy.
I have taught thousands of students in workshops, events, and retreats around the globe. My latest book is Start Here Now: An Open-Hearted Guide to the Path and Practice of Meditation. My next book, The Four Noble Truths of Love: Buddhist Wisdom for Modern Relationships, will be available in June 2018.
Let’s connect! On this page, you’ll find a variety of ways to do so. If you’re not sure where to begin, click on “First Time Here?” above and off we go.
Love, Susan

Susan is the perfect blend of wisdom, joy, and intuition, equally at home on a spiritual retreat, a large stage or a corporate off-site. Her leadership skills draw people in and leave them feeling they’ve been given not just a valuable body of knowledge, but an experience of how to work with and live into it.
