Course objectives:

  • Examine spiritual teachings for finding your way home to the inner sanctuary that is always available, even when the difficulties and losses of life feel overwhelming
  • Discuss how the three gateways of refuge—truth, love, and awareness—allow us to draw on our own deepest wisdom
  • Discern between false refuges such as material wealth, approval from others, or a preoccupation with the past and future; and the cultivation of true refuge in the moment, where there is reliable and trustworthy shelter from the storms of life
  • Utilize eight guided meditations, essential practices for awakening to the aliveness within you, and discovering that you can love this life—no matter what

When the difficulties and losses of life feel overwhelming, is there someplace we can turn for the safety, nurturing, and peace that we long for? Most of us are strongly conditioned to react with fear and confusion, falling back on strategies of judgment, control, addictive behaviors, and anger. Yet there is another way. “In any moment, no matter how lost we feel, we can take refuge in presence and love,” teaches Tara Brach. On Finding True Refuge, this renowned psychologist and meditation teacher offers you three sessions of spiritual teachings and practices for finding your way home to the inner sanctuary that is always available. Tara reveals how the three gateways of refuge—truth, love, and awareness—allow us to draw on our own deepest wisdom, and offers eight guided meditations that include:

  • Mindful awareness—cultivating a non-judging, present-centered attention
  • Using the therapeutic RAIN process for releasing fear and healing through self-compassion
  • Letting go of our desire for control and certainty
  • Cultivating a forgiving heart for ourselves and others

When we seek comfort and relief from stress, Tara Brach teaches, we often unconsciously turn to false refuges such as material wealth, approval from others, or a preoccupation with the past and future. Yet by cultivating true refuge in this moment, we not only find reliable and trustworthy shelter from the storms of life, we also open ourselves up to fully experiencing joy and fulfillment. With Finding True Refuge, Tara brings you essential practices for awakening to the aliveness within you, and discovering that you can love this life—no matter what.

Great content Review by David

I wish Sounds True would take the time to chop the mp3 files up more precisely, and naming them. Being able to listen to guided meditations in separate files would be helpful for me.

Other than that, five stars!

I find Tara's approach to getting in touch with our inner selves extremely pertinent for me. "True Refuge" just reinforced my favorable impression of her and her approach. I loved her calm, soothing voice throughout the CD. I will listen this CD several more times I know. (Posted on August 13, 2014)

Listening to Tara Brach always relaxes me. I return to her meditations over and over again. I find it very helpful that she includes examples from her own life. Sets like this are the next best thing to attending one of her workshops at Omega! (Posted on July 7, 2014)

Tara Brach shares herself and the wisdom she has gained from years of practice both as a meditator and a therapist. Her teaching is clear and immediately useful with grace and ease. I appreciate her authenticity most of all. (Posted on July 4, 2014)

I love these meditations. What I love most about Tara Brach, is her simplicity. She strips her guidance down to the essential, making it easy for us to find our way to our centre and to what matters most. I highly recommend this CD / Download. (Posted on July 3, 2014)
