Course objectives:

  • Explain how feelings of shame and unworthiness are the source of many problems we experience with our relationships, careers, creative endeavors, and most fundamentally, our spiritual unfolding.
  • Discuss Radical Self-Acceptance and how to free yourself from the grip of your insecurities about being good enough.
  • Practice Radical Self-Acceptance as a way to discover the freedom that comes with kindness and true appreciation of yourself and others.
  • Utilize insights from both Eastern contemplative traditions and Western psychotherapies to guide you through a full program of meditations and skills you need to become more compassionate toward the unforgivable parts of your Self.

On Radical Self-Acceptance, this respected clinical psychologist and Buddhist meditation teacher shows you how to free yourself from the grip of your insecurities about being good enough.

With insights from both Eastern contemplative traditions and Western psychotherapies, Dr. Brach guides you through a full program of meditations and skills you need to become more compassionate toward the unforgivable parts of your Self.

As Dr. Brach says, the most difficult—and pervasive—challenge to Westerners today is the suffering caused by our feelings of unworthiness and self-aversion. Radical Self-Acceptance offers a way to break out of this emotional prison, so you can discover the freedom that comes with kindness and true appreciation of yourself and others.

Love-Love-Lovely Review by Pixzy

Wow. Tara Brach's work is transformational. Her gentleness, her compassion, her use of self-disclosure and candor were brilliant. It helped me to uncover ways that shame was operating that I was so unaware of -- not in the "self-help" sense, but in an affirming and self-loving way. I've been recommending this audio to almost everyone! It can be challenging and freeing. 5 stars!

This touches on all my issues and questions Review by Teresa
Rating

I've only listened to the first 50 or so minutes, but I'm already re-listening again and again. I'm so grateful for this audio download. I value Tara's wisdom because she describes experiences that she went through that are similar to mine and the realizations that she had because of them. I appreciate that she touches on so many of the questions I ask myself during self reflection and in daily life. This is helping me to understand myself so that I can heal, but also is helping me to understand humanity, especially the society I live in. I look forward to the healing practices.

Review for Radical Self-Acceptance Review by Nell B.
Rating

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
