#31: Books that changed or touched our lives - Radical Acceptance by Tara Brach

YayCanDo

In this book club episode, Paula and Bernie discuss some of the key ideas and differing views about the personal impact of the powerful bestseller Radical Acceptance by Tara Brach. In the book Tara Brach discusses how universal and very human feelings such as sorrow, pain, fear, anxiety and desire, which may indicate that something is wrong or be an appropriate response to a challenging situation are often solidified into "something is wrong with me", unleashing our inner critic and a war against oneself. Tara advocates that through accepting our moment to moment experience even the uncomfortable or painful feelings without resisting and balancing this mindfulness with compassion, we can find radical acceptance, healing and freedom from unconscious habits of self-hatred and blame. Highly recommended by Bernie with super guided reflections and meditations and personal stories.  Show notes: 1. Growing up unworthy 2. Strategies to manage the pain of our inadequacy 3. Accepting our human  existence and all of life as it is 4. True freedom is being without anxiety about imperfection  5. Imperfection is not our personal problem - it is a natural way of being 6. Coming home to our body 7. Awakening to the source of longing  8. Unfolding into wholeness

How to Combine Social Change & Inner Change with Tara Brach

Uncommon Ground with Van Jones

“The only thing that helps me is to feel like I'm holding hands with others who are remembering.” It seems like there are two types of people. Some are focused on fixing the external world – fighting to solve tough social problems. Other people are focused on healing their internal worlds – doing the spiritual work to deepen their own wisdom. What happens when we recognize the need for BOTH? Is it possible to combine the pursuits for outer peace and inner peace? This week, Van sits down with renowned mediation teacher and author, Tara Brach. Their discussion reveals ways that “inner bridge building” can help us tackle the most divisive issues of our time.New episodes of Uncommon Ground with Van Jones release weekly, every Wednesday. Have a question for Van? Call 347-770-2785 and leave him a voicemail. Your question will be recorded, and it may be played and answered on a future episode of Uncommon Ground!See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Tara Brach | Wisdom For Anxious Times [BEST OF]

Good Life Project

My guest today, Tara Brach, has been one of my teachers for years, though she never knew it. Back in the early days of podcasting, I stumbled upon her weekly dharma talks or Buddhist teachings and meditations that she’d offer at her Insight Meditation Center in DC, record, then air as podcasts, and the blend of her gentle presence, her deep wisdom that was clearly not just studied, but also lived, her humility, real-world sensibility, and humor drew me in. Tara’s teachings blend Western psychology, she’s also a clinical psychologist, along with Eastern spiritual practices, mindful attention to our inner life, and a full, compassionate engagement with our world. The result is a distinctive voice in Western Buddhism, one that offers a wise and caring approach to freeing ourselves and society from suffering.She is kindness and insight embodied, and I’ve learned so much from both her offerings and also the way she seems to move through life over the years. Which is why I was so excited to be able to spend some time going deep into not just certain pivotal moments in Tara’s path, but also the powerful tools and practices she’s developed in the name of allowing us to breathe more easily into whatever comes our way, at the core of which is something Tara shorthands with the acronym RAIN, which is transformational and we explore how it can move into our lives, especially in the context of compassion, acceptance, and what’s been going on in society these days.
