Thank you!

Anything Tara Brach has to offer in her teaching is worth your investment of time and finances to listen to. She is clear, intelligent and insightful in her communication, and compassion is palpably experienced in the depth of her presence. While not long, the theme of this recording holds potency in her proficient handling of the subject.

My spiritual healer recommended that I order this while I was having trouble forgiving myself for so many things.

It was so very healing to listen to this every morning right after I woke up. I would actually look forward to my day after listening to Tara! It's not just a "discussion," but a meditative experience. Her guided meditations were so very powerful, as were her quotes from famous authors and gurus. Her metaphorical analogies for life were so very helpful too. She has a calming voice and pauses frequently throughout so that you can absorb all that she is saying.

Frankly, this teaching has been life-changing. I found it at exactly the right time. I've had decades of experience with self-help programs, and this truly is radical and yet helpful in a way I've never before encountered. Kudos to Tara Brach.

Dear Sounds True Community,

I am satisfied with the order. I was worth getting this audiobook. Tara Brach created a product that allows for insight and emotional connection to the material. I just today recommended it to a classmate.
Thanks for promoting this type of work

This was so very helpful - it is easy to think I am the only one who has difficulty honoring and accepting myself - where I am - who I am at this time... I listen to this cd (there are three) each and every night - Sometimes I fall asleep before it is over, but on some level I am hearing it....it opens my heart to compassion - for myself - and all the others who suffer from this lack of acceptance - this lack of love - for ourselves.... Her voice is soothing - and listening to her express these wonderful Buddhist views totally feels authentic. I believe her - I believe she knows with her heart, what she is sharing with us.

I love the CD/download! Tara Brach is wonderful. Her insights are deep, never glib or sentimental. I found her teaching on making peace with the shadow deities profound and moving.

Tara's instructions are insightful, as usual, and her meditations are helpful. An excellent guide to explore and solve the issue that is at the core of all other issues. This is worth repeated listenings, and I expect to pull this gem out every year or so.

Excellent, healing, deep! I am in a search for the products on the topic of shame and self-acceptance for years and Tara's talks and meditations are so touching and effective in bringing about the change! I would recommend it to people who were traumatised but at this stage feel too ashamed to talk about it, talking to a therapist wasn't an option for me for a long time because of the shame, it never worked because I would just shut down. I knew I had to figure out a way from the inside before I could talk to sb and this program was a great help! Thank you!

Tara Brach has a great gift of being able to describe mental defenses and also points to a way beyond them. I listen to this, along with "Emotional Healing," every day, and there is always a new enlightening phrase that I did not catch before. I think she is a genius on self-aversion and its cure.

A wonderful resource! I've had this audio book for about a year and listen to it often. It has five or six short, guided meditations in it that are excellent. If you want to get a feel for Tara Brach's style before buying this, check out her free podcasts and meditations at the Insight Meditation Community of Washington. This book is slightly more focussed on shame than her general talks - but you'll get the idea.

Tara's Radical Sel-Aceptance is an mayor work to develop compassion and understanding for ourselves.
For many of us the live outside the US or Europe is really difficult to purchase books or cds because mail problems. I only hope you can make available in digital format so folks living in Thrid World countries have access to it.

I liked this product on many levels, the calm, steady gentle voice of Tara herself combined with strong powerful effective ways of working with shame and feelings of worthlessness. I reccomend this for anyone from professionals working in the field of helping others to people working directly on themselves.

This was my first Tara Brach CD or book & I look forward to more studies. The first 2 CD's were difficult for me to pay attention to, but I think it's my mind's habit to wander during spoken (no music) CD's. The info contained within the CD was excellent.

The last CD really resonated with me and I got a lot out of it. Plenty of useful, clarifying information & practice.

I did not like this CD, mainly because I found it way too cheesy and "deep" in a way that made it a caricature. Tara Brach, in my opinion, is way too serious in this CD... could she really believe the ridiculous stuff she spouts... like everyone she passes, she says to herself, "You are my friend." Sorry that is creepy and probably a bad idea. I would reccomend Pema Chodron's CD How to meditate, very down to earth compared to this CD.

This one went in one ear and out the other. I didn't take anything lasting away with me. In fact, I think I'm probably going to listen to it again just to see if I can get more out of it, rather than because I got so much out of it.
