The greatest gift is the
gift of the teachings
Tara Brach's Dharma Talks
Tara Brach
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.

Meditation practice can be profoundly healing in working with deep personal wounds. The art of healing with meditation is possible when we understand the effects of different styles of meditation, recognize what aspects of meditation may be contraindicated and ground the healing process in a nurturing relational context.
