Hello, Open Heart Project meditator! It is great that we can practice together.

From a recent survey, I learned that many of you were interested in learning more about Buddhism, which is awesome. I am happy to share some of what I’ve learned over the years as a 20+ year meditator and graduate of a Buddhist seminary. (However, I am still totally a beginner.)

As mentioned in previous videos, Buddhism is based on the Four Noble Truths. The last of these states that there is an 8-fold path that, if followed, will lead to liberation from suffering. I want to share a bit about these steps in this and other upcoming videos.

The first step is called “Right View,” which makes sense because if you are starting out on any path, the first thing you want is a clear picture of where you are going. It is much easier to navigate on a clear day vs. a cloudy one. Before today’s sit, I offer you some thoughts about what is meant by Right View and how you can achieve it.


Love, Susan
