Robert Béliveau
After practicing family medicine in Quebec for twenty-three years, Robert Béliveau chose to take his career in an unexpected direction, but entirely consistent with his beliefs. He decided to devote himself to teaching methods of stress reduction. His encounter with Jon Kabat-Zinn, renowned for having integrated mindfulness meditation in traditional medicine, was decisive. He leads mindfulness based stress reduction workshops at the Épic center of the Montreal Heart Institute. He is co-author with Jacques Lafleur, psychologist, of Les quatre clés de l’équilibre personnel.

Sharon Salzberg
The most compelling part of my practice right now comes in the form of my writing. For a long time, I've focused my teaching and writing on lovingkindness. Now as I look more deeply into lovingkindness, I find that it actually rests on another foundation, the expression of faith.

The millennium question I hear students asking is how they can integrate the path of self-liberation with the path of paying attention to the welfare of others. My focus is guiding practitioners to do both. The dharmic brilliance is that liberation, the core teaching, creates a deep, transformative experience of who we are, which, in turn, transforms our care for the state of all beings everywhere.
