Healing is a process of coming home to one's authentic self—to the loving presence that is the ground of our being. But we often get trapped by the false refuges of fear-based habits and judgmental thoughts.

To help us bring the fruits of mindfulness practice into our lives for healing and transformation, Dr. Tara Brach offers Meditation and Psychotherapy.

Created for mental health professionals and illuminating to anyone interested in the core techniques, practices, and insights of Buddhist psychology, this experience-focused audio learning program helps us find our way back to natural presence, a place where peace and our deep love for life grows.

Course objectives:

  • Apply the R.A.I.N. technique in your work with clients
  • Utilize mindfulness meditation to clear blockages that prevent living fully
  • Discuss basic concepts of Buddhist psychology
  • Recognize aspirations and intentions that support awakening
  • Practice a variety of different guided meditations
  • Adapt specific mindfulness practices to individual client needs
  • Integrate mindfulness into your personal and professional life

Learning How to Face Our Tangled Emotions and Release Our Limiting Beliefs

There are many skillful means that we can use to train ourselves and our clients to become aware, teaches Brach, a psychotherapist and meditator of more than 30 years. But they all lead to one essential question: Can I be here in this moment?

Using her R.A.I.N. technique, a four-part process that helps us learn how to stop running away from our tangled emotions and start to lovingly face them, we'll investigate and unblock the beliefs that cause suffering. Guiding us through meditations and practices on mindfulness, loving-kindness, forgiveness, allowing, and more, Brach shares key tools and expert insights for moving through this liberating process so that we can open and allow our lives to unfold, moment by moment.

“Mindfulness can strengthen our attention, awaken compassion and empathy, and expand our acceptance of our own inner states,” teaches Brach. Meditation and Psychotherapy draws on the strengths of mindfulness meditation and the practice of modern therapeutic methods to help clear the emotional blocks holding us back.


  • R.A.I.N., a liberating four-step process for learning how to end the suffering caused by clinging to our emotions
  • How we all can awaken from the trance of unworthiness using mindful awareness and lovingkindness
  • The alchemy of self-compassion and how it can help in our relationships with others
  • Why we don't have to believe our thoughts—the transformative power of self-inquiry
  • “Touch and go,” an approach for gently disarming the energy of trauma
  • Tips for adapting practices for your individual client's needs
  • A new model of psychotherapy that emphasizes the client/therapist relationship as an unfolding partnership
  • More than eight hours of expert insights, practices, and tips for using mindfulness meditation and modern therapeutic methods to help untangle our difficult emotions

Informative, Interesting, and Helpful on so many levels Review by Kathleen F

There is such dignity, warmth, and wisdom in Tara's teachings. I could listen to her all day. This learning module is helpful on so many levels. On a personal level, it has informed and developed my own meditation practice. On a professional level as a physician, it has provided me invaluable tools for teaching and for sharing Mindfulness with others. Thank you.

Wonderful Review by Donnocha

Funny, interesting, absorbing, and informative. I work as a therapist and I got so much from this for myself in my own life, and for my work. I love Tara's voice and her way of teaching. Wonderful!

Review for Meditation and Psychotherapy Review by jill k

This has been the most helpful work I have come across - for my own personal journey and work as an addiction counselor. I am so grateful for Tara's wisdom, genuineness and love the stories. Have already been passing some of them on to clients where helpful. Many thanks Tara and Sounds True!

Review for Meditation and Psychotherapy Review by Richard Nishimura

Educational, Compassionate, Caring, Inspiring, Humorous, Engaging

I am recovering from depression and had no interest in meditation or psychology until I began my healing journey three years ago. While this live presentation was originally aimed at psychotherapists, I found the recording to be affirming, inspiring, and educational for me. It helped me better understand how I can incorporate my meditation practice into my journey of healing, recovery, wellness and personal growth.

As always, Tara speaks with deep sincerity, and her compassion, kindness, and love shine through in the humorous and often personal stories that she uses to illustrate her points. Although the title might cause you to think that this will be an impersonal and clinical presentation that is not so. Tara's presentation carries all of the personal, calm, soothing and spiritual warmth that I find present in her other recordings. I don't know if this was intentional to help the therapists internalize what she was saying in a deeper way, or if this is just how Tara is all the time. I like to think a bit of both but more of the latter.

This is a recording that I highly recommend for anyone with a regular meditation practice who is on a healing journey and has reached a point where they want to know more about how meditation might help them. I would also recommend this to someone who is skeptical about incorporating meditation into their healing, but who has some understanding of therapy and is seeking direction. For such people, Tara does an excellent job of framing meditation in terms of western medical knowledge and in the context of western psychotherapy. This is not a recording for those seeking to start a meditation practice or who are seeking immediate guidance to help them through deep suffering. There are many other recordings for such purposes, including many by Tara.

I find this recording unique in that it is aimed solely at therapists, and yet is of value to a much wider audience. The sound quality is good, and I expect to listen to this recording whenever I feel a need to strengthen the connection between my meditation practice and whatever else I am doing for healing, recovery, well being, and growth.

Thank you to Tara for giving such an exceptional and needed course tor therapists, and to Sounds True for making a good quality recording, editing the week-long course into this purposeful and engaging recording and making it available.

Review for Meditation and Psychotherapy Review by Robin

I love this CD set. I've been listening to it slowly over the last month. and I'm loving digesting it in small pieces (I'm on CD #5 of 6, and I'm sure I'll be enjoying replaying it in the future). There's a lot of wisdom in these disks, and it's presented in a straight-forward, approachable manner that is tremendously helpful.

Review for Meditation and Psychotherapy Review by Sharon W

This is an extremely useful and informative presentation of mindfulness and psychotherapy. As a current psych major and long-time meditator I have been interested in exactly how mindfulness can play into the psycho-therapeutic process, in a practical hands-on way. I have found this to be a wonderful resource; I felt that I was actually attending a conference with Tara.

I especially enjoyed the meditations that are interspersed into the lectures, as well as the personal examples given. They helped to reinforce and integrate the intellectual understanding.

To Sounds True customers I would recommend as a good complement to this teaching Kristin Neff's "Self Compassion Step by Step."

Review for Meditation and Psychotherapy Review by jessi

Thank you Tara, Thank you SoundsTrue.
This has been so enormously helpful - there are no words... not only is it very practical and wise help for the counselor in relationship to the client, but in teaching us how to engage compassionately and mindfully reaches out and pulls us so much more deeply into our own practice and helps us engage ourselves with so much more wisdom and compassion...
Again, thank you.

I am really enjoying this course and finding that it helps validate, expand and guide my use of mindfulness practices in my clinical work. I also like that the download comes with a PDF file as a table of contents to the audio files.
