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.
1995-02-02 Difficult Forces In Spiritual Life - part 1 1:15:24
What are the challenging energies that all humans encounter? How do they arise? What is a wise and transformative way of working with these universal forces? These talks describe what have been classically called "The Five Hindrances" and offer instructions for responding to the weather that arises.
