Mindfulness expert, thought leader, entrepreneur, and New York Times best-selling author who takes spiritual wisdom out of the temple and brings it to work, home, and real life.

Susan Piver is a Buddhist teacher known for her sharp insight, real world leadership experience, expansive knowledge of wisdom traditions, and incredible good humor. Blending the inspirational and the practical, her keynote speeches open new doorways of thought that lead to positive action.

Far from meditating in an ivory tower, Susan is founder of the Open Heart Project, an entrepreneurial venture which has turned into the world’s largest virtual mindfulness community. She is an expert on the power of focus to accomplish outcomes and the creative gift of expanded awareness to break through limitations—both of which result from a steady mindfulness practice.

  • Susan is one of the most gifted teachers that I know. I’ve had the great pleasure of hearing her present many times since she was a regular guest teacher in an open house series that I coordinated. Susan has a unique ability to connect in a deep and authentic way with the participants. When you do a workshop with her, everyone feels that they are part of a conversation about things they care about. I can’t recommend her too strongly.
