Description

“When I took my first steps on the spiritual path,” says Tami Simon, “I was looking for answers to life’s greatest mysteries. Over time I learned that the best books and teachers pointed us inward—to our own experience—and that this is where we can find our greatest sense of aliveness and purpose.” On Being True, the founder of Sounds True distills essential lessons learned from 30 years of exploring the edge where spiritual wisdom meets the challenges of work, life, and love. Join her for four intimate sessions on:

  • Being true as a process—five keys for living in integrity
  • Spirituality in action—how we can apply our highest values in the workplace and in our relationships
  • Her most transformative encounters with spiritual teachers

Sounds True listeners and followers of the Insights at the Edge podcast series have heard Tami introducing and interviewing leading voices in spirituality, science, and creativity. Now she speaks to you directly as a fellow traveler on the journey—sharing her most valuable insights on honoring your inner imperatives in the real world, meeting setbacks with an open heart, and remaining alive to the inner voice that always encourages each of us to “be true.”

True but Untested Review by womanofthedeepwild
Rating

In the school of life, Tami is like an excited kindergarten pupil who’s gotten a gold star and praise from all her teachers, and now has the confidence to impart wisdom to those who are going through the arduous process of getting their PHDs.

It is obvious this woman has not gone through the dark night of the soul, and thus has spiritual wisdom in theory only. If you find that useful or inspiring, and have not gone through the dark night either, then her wisdom will speak to you. Those who have gone through the dark night of the soul will find her wisdom does not apply to their own experience.

Only when you have been tested by the worst tempests of life will you know whether you can actually continue Being True, and live up to the wisdom you have learned. There is no other way. As more people start weathering such tempests, these kinds of theoretical teachings will have less and less relevance. Only the school of life will remain relevant.

Wow! Review by Siba
Rating

I am an aid worker in a country where people struggle just to provide the bare minimun for their families and live in constant fear of violence... I had not expected to find this so helpful in such different circunstances as the ones Tami talks about... but I found her words wonderfully wise and helpful. Thank You Sounds True- your voice reaches further than you know...

Beautiful, powerful, and validating. Review by Julia
Rating

Though I've never met her, I have profound respect for Tami Simon. I've ordered products from Sounds True for many years and am delighted to have this opportunity to know more about its founder. In this CD Tami tells the powerful, true story of her life and how she discovered and practices the path of integrity. I found myself relating to and hanging on her words. The pureness of her path of integrity shines through her telling, and I delighted to find both inspiration and validation in the listening. Tami is extremely gifted in her ability to distill the essence of universal spiritual practices she's gleaned in her personal journey. She bestows them upon the listener in a relevant, powerful, beautiful presentation that models Being True even in the telling of her journey and the extremely helpful tools she has been blessed to discover.

Brilliant Review by Annie
Rating

I loved every minute of listening to this series. Tami, I have long admired your quiet and eloquent introductions at retreats I have attended and love Sounds True and all it offers, but to hear your stories and insights and wisdom on Being True was SO WONDERFUL. And I mean FULL OF WONDER. I had to keep stopping along my walk to take notes and want to go back and listen again and again. Like all TRUE insights, they can bear listening to over and over and still feel fresh and insightful. Thank you for sharing your beautiful, REAL, humble insights with us. You are an inspiration.

Soothing voice. Grounded message. Review by Alisa
Rating

So much wisdom distilled down into primary lessons that only experience can offer. Tami synthesizes this wisdom into a a soothing guidance of how life unfolds, perfectly imperfect and exactly as we need to become authentically who we really are. Do we dare?
Beautiful and brave. Thank you.

Speaks to my soul Review by Amanda
Rating

Tami, you are an amazing woman and have inspired me so much. You spoke to my very soul. With great passion and integrity. I live in Ireland and so wish we had someone like you here. I feel the same passion and fire that you have about being of service to the world. I have been trying so much to give birth to my heartfelt prayer of being of service and you have given me hope and inspiration. You are full of divine essence. Thank you so much. Amanda

Really comforting Review by MPM

Listened to the first half. Found it relevant and really comforting. Realize these things can be applied to any stage of life; and at 52, I like knowing I can still venture down this path.

Finally! Review by Ben
Rating

I have been waiting for Tami to share her own journey and learning ever since I came across Sounds True. Her mission and her questions have always seemed to arise from a deeply human place to me, and I found myself listening to Insights at the Edge just to here Tami's thoughts and perspectives as she created a space for learning and connection with the participants in her conversations.

I work with people in complex adaptive challenges (individuals and organisations) and draw huge inspiration from the organisation of Sounds True that Tami has built. This recording is inspiring, and one I will treasure on the hard days when top-down, "command and control", "profit is the only bottom line"-type thinking seems to be the only story, and one that feels too powerful to change.

Full of heart and wisdom, and a deep trust in individuals to find their own way in the world, I would recommend this program to anyone!

Tami is an elder in her own right Review by Mark Nepo
Rating

For thirty years, Tami has been a devoted student of the wisdom that comes from authentic living and has been a master listener. I'm so glad and grateful that she has surfaced with her own wisdom and as a guide and rightful elder in her own right. I have been blessed to work with Tami and know firsthand what a deep soul and wise teacher she is. Being True is deeply moving and deeply useful. It will help you get closer to your soul and to life.

Thank you! Review by RG
Rating

Thank you, Tami, for sharing your journey and your spiritual insights. While I was listening to this program "Being True," there were so many things you said that reminded me my own thoughts and experiences. I am sure there are a lot of people out there who can benefit by listening to this program, because it really helps us to (re)discover our own unique identity and voice in the world. I also wanted to express my gratitude for creating Sounds True! Certain books and audio programs have literally changed my life. Thank you for that!

Priceless wisdom from Tami Review by Lindy
Rating

I bought this audiobook expecting it to be very good but my expectations were exceeded. Tami's heartfelt narration and the quality of concepts contained in the book rang True in my heart and touched the core of my being. Don't miss this opportunity to grow in spirit and kindness, I highly recommend it.

Beautiful and practical Review by Melody
Rating

I am so enjoying this discussion- Tami speaking her truth in response to years of her exploration and experience of the inner-self and dialog with others. So much wisdom here, and given from a place of Tami's intimate internal experience, spoken with such clarity. The gift for me here is not any newness of information, but the honest and clear revelation of Tami's experience- a testimony of the process of creating and maintaining authentic experience. Thank you, Tami!

Your experience Review by C A spiritual searcher

Tami-
Thank you for your audio sample of "Being True"! I listen to you interview others and ask them questions about their own experiences. My favorite parts of this audio are when you tell me your own experiences in your life!
Thank you again!

Sounds very true Review by Lisa
Rating

I am basing my review on the 90 minute free intro.
Deeply moving. Feels true to the core. Inspiring. Just what I needed to hear exactly when I needed to hear it. I am so moved to follow my heart and to listen to the daemon that is becoming ever more clear to me. There is so much wisdom within ourselves and deeply listening to our calling is what it's all about - I am coming into this realization in a big way. Feels so inspiring to hear another's story that resonates with me. Thank you from the depths of my heart, Tami.

Incredbily heart-opening and affirmative for understanding and shining ones' own truth Review by rock
Rating

Tami inspires us all to spend time in the void and listen to the inner wisdom within ourselves to shine who we really are as the unique individuals we came to be. She shares quotes from spiritual teachers, along with her own experience, to express her passion for being true and revealing our true heart to the world. I am thankful to have opened up my email and listened to the free excerpt. I am inspired to be a wayfinder and walk where no one has been before. I have come up with my own personal prayer to ask for guidance. I am so grateful.

Wonderful Review by Antonia

Tami thank you for this, I loved it and only wish I had heard it years ago when I was young, lost, and searching. I resonated with so much that you said about believing in our originality. You sound warm and wise, with an intimacy that comes from your own truth.
