Susan Piver

Susan Piver, in her own words: 

I’m interested in extreme self-knowledge, the Buddhadharma, relationships of all kinds, creativity, the Enneagram, and using every single day to become a more truthful version of who I already am.

I write. I have written 5 books and may be working on a 6th. I also write on my own blog and for the Huffington Post, as well as for others who ask me to say what I think. It is my great good fortune to spend my days sitting alone at my desk, asking myself what I think of various things and then writing it down.

I practice. I have been a Buddhist practitioner since 1995, which is when I took formal refuge vows in the Shambhala Buddhist lineage. Reading the books of Chogyam Trungpa introduced me to the dharma and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche is my beloved teacher. I practice formal sitting meditation, acting right, being nice, digging deep, and forgiving myself when I screw up.

I study. I graduated from seminary in my lineage in 2004 and continue to find great joy from ongoing study and practice of the Buddhadharma.

I teach. I’ve been authorized to teach meditation since 2006. I have some individual students, but mostly I teach by offering workshops on creativity, relationships, and spirituality.
