When it Rains it Pours
Tara Brach www.tarabrach.com/rain/
Tara Brach’s teachings blend Western psychology and 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 pain patterns.
**Along with her life affirming books: Radical Acceptance and Radical Compassion, she also has several inspirational videos that helps us see and integrate practices such as R.A.I.N ( recognize, allow, investigate, nurture). Her wise and compassionate approach helped me to stop rejecting: myself, my feelings and sensations. I experienced a shift when I “allow” life to be as it was/is. Profound Acceptance has been an extraordinary gift that builds a healing atmosphere for myself and others.
