A pervasive but often invisible source of suffering in our culture is self-aversion. We are a busy culture, and we move through our life feeling anxious and dissatisfied, but not fully conscious of how we neglect or judge our inner experience. We suffer from a lack of belonging: to our own bodies, to each other and to the earth. When we practice Buddhist meditation, we learn how to listen deeply and hold our life tenderly.
1998-12-30 Awakening Through Shame 52:09
Much of our suffering is due to a pervasive and often buried sense of core deficiency. This talk investigates the source of self-aversion, how it hides and the enormous healing and freedom that is possible when this life-binding experience of shame is brought into compassionate awareness.
