Despite our best intentions, we often have trouble dealing effectively with strong emotions. This 2-session CD gives us a collection of insights and practices for bringing compassion, clarity, and understanding to our emotional lives instead of expressing or repressing emotions in unhealthy, destructive ways.
Drawing on her background in clinical psychology and three decades teaching Buddhist meditation, Tara Brach guides us through four powerful yet gentle meditations suitable for any level of experience:
- Arriving in the Natural Presence - the foundational practice for working with difficult emotions and sensations
- The "Yes" Meditation - a liberating way to give space to the actuality of a situation and foster emotional healing
- "RAIN" Meditation - a practice of deep inquiry for overcoming self-aversion and awakening to the truth of who we are
- Calling on Love - a heart-opening meditation for taking refuge in unconditional love
Tara Brach teaches that the root of our challenging emotions is the illusion of separation and inadequacy. What frees us is learning to trust the loving presence that is our very essence.
