Susan Piver is the New York Times bestselling author of nine books, including The Hard Questions, the award-winning How Not to Be Afraid of Your Own Life, The Wisdom of a Broken Heart, and Start Here Now: An Open-Hearted Guide to the Path and Practice of Meditation. Her new book, The Four Noble Truths of Love: Buddhist Wisdom for Modern Relationships, is out now.
Susan has an international reputation for being an exceptionally skillful meditation teacher. She teaches workshops and speaks on mindfulness, resilience, communication, relationships, and creativity. She has been a student of Buddhism since 1995, graduated from a Buddhist seminary in 2004 and was authorized to teach meditation in 2005.
Known for her insight, clarity, and humor, Susan is as comfortable giving a 60-minute keynote to an audience of thousands as she is leading a day-long offsite for a small group. To audiences from London and San Francisco, Amsterdam and Toronto, and in interviews with Oprah, Ann Curry, Katie Couric, the New York Times, O Magazine, Redbook, and others, Susan’s mission is to teach everyone how to slow down, give deeply, and create a life of fearlessness and authenticity.
