Healing is a process of coming home to the truth and fullness of who we are—to the loving awareness that gets covered by veils of obsessive thinking, painful emotions, and limiting beliefs. As Tara Brach, clinical psychologist and meditation instructor for more than 30 years, teaches, "Through the practice of mindfulness and the power of our heart, we can begin to transcend our layers of unhealthy attitudes, view our situations with greater objectivity and acceptance, and open to the loving presence that we really are." With Meditation and Psychotherapy, she shares an illuminating online training course for mental health professionals, their clients, and anyone interested in using the core techniques, practices, and insights from Buddhist psychology for emotional healing.

This multimedia course includes a variety of tools to support your learning and help you directly experience the transformative power of mindfulness practice. With more than nine hours of video instruction and personal insights by Brach, as well as guided practices on audio—all of which you can download and keep—you'll cover the essentials of integrating mindfulness into your personal and professional life. Additional topics include Brach's unique interpretation of the R.A.I.N technique, a liberating process that helps us lovingly face our tangled emotions by recognizing, allowing, investigating, and non-identifying.

"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.

outstanding course and content and meditations Review by sarah

Tara has the most amazing ability to translate difficult concepts into easier concepts to follow and understand--I love the way she uses western ideas to explain eastern paradigms--I am envious of those of you east coasters who live and work near her!! She is simply outstanding---

Review for Meditation and Psychotherapy Review by Julie D

This program is easy to follow. I downloaded everything from the website immediately and put it on disc. Then I printed the pages as well and made a hard copy set. I listened and watched it all as I downloaded it and then slowly over the next couple of weeks went back through it.
It helped me.
I would recommend it to anyone.
I am not a teacher or psychologist - just on my own journey.

Review for Meditation and Psychotherapy Review by Michele W

Excellent program! Enjoy the format very much, and love her teaching style. I have attended some of Tara's retreats, and this very close to having a retreat with her in my home!

Review for Meditation and Psychotherapy Review by Candy W

I am finding the sessions with Tara interesting and helpful while at times challenging. I appreciate that I can listen at my convenience and multiple times, if desired. Her guided meditations are excellent and the questions helpful in digesting the thought provoking material.

Review for Meditation and Psychotherapy Review by Cynthia J

This is such an amazing course...it is an experience that has been life transforming...Tara makes the concepts so easily accessible and understandable. I have immediate put into my own clinical practice the principles she teaches and my own life/spiritual practices have been so enriched. I have recommended these courses here at Sounds True to any and all of my collegues who have been willing to listen!

Review for Meditation and Psychotherapy Review by Gretchen Gossen

I was pleased with this workshop because it kept me in touch with issues in my life that keep me tied in my own knots. I found the program helped me to rebalance and also provided encouragement to continue my own progress that includes working with other 12 Step people in recovery. I am so grateful to Tara Brach and her gentle nature to lead me into a larger view of myself in a loving process. Thank you, all of you.

Review for Meditation and Psychotherapy Review by John Moritz

Best investment since I got my masters degree in 1980. Tara is clear and concise and has helped me in my practice. She is right on in her approach to counseling and with her teachings. A truly top experience Thanks, John

Review for Meditation and Psychotherapy Review by Jeanette Meyer

This event is not over yet - but, up to this point - the class has been outstanding. First, the presentation is inviting. Secondly, Tara is simply wonderful - not only in her command of the subject, but also in her humorous additions.

This appears to be a process that works. Putting it into practice will be a deepening journey.

Review for Meditation and Psychotherapy Review by Annemarie Coulson

I am loving this course. Tara explains things clearly and wittily with funny or inspiring stories.
i find the questions that go with it thought provoking.
It is excellent value for money as you get a lot of material.
I like the convenience of watching it at a time that suits me.
Sometimes I have problems with the video, which keeps stopping, so that you don't get a good flow of conversation. However the audio only version doesn't do this.
As a long time fan of Tara, I have heard some of the content before, but what she says is always worth being reminded of.

Review for Meditation and Psychotherapy Review by Judy

Tara is one of the most amazing Western Buddhist teachers. She makes the teachings accessible to anyone. Tara bridges meditation and psychotherapy in a way I haven't heard anyone else do. She emphasizes compassion and kindness, something most of us desperately need in the west.

Tara is an amazing, down to earth and interesting teacher who I have been listening to for years. I count her as one of my true refuges.
