Meditation has the power to change your life.

The Open Heart Project is a twice-weekly free email newsletter dedicated to supporting you in your meditation practice no matter where you are on the path. It gives you the same information and guidance you’d receive at a Buddhist meditation center—but now all you have to do is push “play.”

Each email contains two videos: a 10-minute guided meditation AND a short talk on a related topic like finding the right posture, working with stress, or developing self-acceptance.

Since 2011, over 5000 people have joined. It is useful for people of all backgrounds and religious beliefs (or non-beliefs).

Meditation practice can help you create a life of sanity and peace and I will do everything I can to support you. I hope you will give it a try.

Love, Susan

what people are saying about the Open Heart Project

“I have wanted to meditate for some time. I tried different books and cds, but nothing ever felt right or clicked for me. But YOU, wonderful Susan! You have taught me to meditate! You make me LOOK FORWARD to meditating! Thank you for your generosity with your time and your wisdom.” Lynne G.

“It is a great comfort to learn meditation from someone who is both inspiring and down to earth. I suffer from anxiety and have found that your meditations are enormously helpful in gently encouraging me in a healthier direction. Many heartfelt thanks.” M.Davis

I find that the acceptance inherent in the practice has allowed me to let go of shame, and that love has taken its place. I cannot thank you enough.” Julie I.

“Susan, I just wanted to say thank you for the Open Heart Project. Not only was it a light at the end of the blackest tunnel for me, but most importantly it propelled me into regular meditation practice. I am excited at this new path opening up before me and cannot wait to see where it takes me.” Kelly M.
