The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.
How To Practice Radical Acceptance In All Areas Of Life | This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers, MitoPure, and Athletic GreensIt can be really scary to be alone with ourselves and our thoughts. The stories that keep us suffering can sometimes get louder than ever when we aren’t embracing distraction, and we usually try to push them away. But what can help break this pattern is to stop being at war with the moment, just letting our feelings be without buying into the beliefs that come with them. This is one part of the process of radical acceptance, a topic I was excited to dive into today with the one and only Tara Brach. Tara Brach holds a PhD in clinical psychology and teaches meditation internationally. Founder of the Insight Meditation Community of Washington, DC (IMCW), Tara is the author of the bestsellers Radical Acceptance, Radical Compassion, True Refuge, and her new book, Trusting the Gold.
