Sharon Salzberg is one of my favorite meditation teachers. Her books are easy to read as she is a natural storyteller with a nurturing spirit. But the truths are no less profound. Real Change is a guide to making change, written with advocates and activists in mind. Social justice work is difficult, demanding, and can be all consuming. How can you take a break when you see so much need, when you feel angry and frustrated? Salzberg argues, and I can speak from personal experience, even a few minutes of meditation each day has helped me find a space within the work where I can rest and then return refreshed. It sharpens my focus and allows me to gauge my reactions in a more thoughtful way. When I open my eyes after practicing and look out on the world, I know it is the same broken place, I feel the familiar anger, but I also feel as though I have more courage to keep moving forward even as I accept the current circumstances.
