    1. I lustened to this on Audible. It is a series of guided meditations which are soothing to listen to while also engaging. It is guiding more than instructional. It is as if Tara is present with you. I have listened to this while traveling on early morning flights between KC and LA and also while on walks through the woods. Maybe this book lends itself to a sense of journey. Learning to accept oneself is a worthy journey.Don't let the word Buddhist in the title keep you from experiencing this book [...]

    2. Tara Brach's voice is gentle and warm. Is she reading from her book? It's hard to tell. I listened to this audiobook in sections, while on long rambling walks in the autumn sunshine-ish forest. It felt like she was speaking softly in my ear, giving me small steps to take on a path of self-awareness and healing. A wonderful tool for anyone working on overcoming shame and guilt. Recommended

    3. Oops! I thought that this was Tara’s book by the same name, but, in fact, this is a series of talks and guided meditations. That said, I think it was the perfect introduction to her work. I’ve known about her for some time, but have been wrestling with (1) the fact that I’m not Buddhist (though I have great respect for the religion) and (2) the fact that I have some preconceived notions and biases when it comes to metaphysical stuff. Fortunately, I was finally able to get out of my own way [...]

    4. Soothing and healing as the usual Tara Brach. Listening to her is always a nourishing gift you can give yourself. Tara teaches the power of surrendering to what it is and embracing whatever comes through for a radical acceptance of life and its challenges. Her style is also simple and straightforward nevertheless intense. I found myself tearing up a few times facing the strong sense of humanity that transpires from this audiobook. I am very grateful for her teachings and would certainly recommen [...]

    5. well done! R.A.I.N. (recognition + awareness + investigation + non-identifying with) and it works space, pause, awareness, yes to what is

    6. I don't know there's something missing in this one. For one thing, I thought I'd mistakenly downloaded only part of the book. I had to look it up online and found that nope there are only 3 CDs. There seems to be no conclusion or ending of any sort. I also re-started listening to these SEVERAL times, because I would look at the list of chapter titles and not remember learning anything about those topics. Then I'd listen and, oh yes I've listened to this before about 5 times already. Maybe my own [...]

    7. This recording is a beautiful, comforting walk that leads you to take a hard look at your emotional reactions to yourself and to others. Tara Brach comes at her advice from a Buddhist perspective, but many of the concepts are recognizable from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. She explains the concepts clearly in a gentle voice, and then she walks the listener through some short meditations to reflect on what she’s been teaching. I think most everyone can learn something from here, and I highly re [...]

    8. This book was recommended to me by my best friend. It was one of the best reads in a long time. Tara has great insight to the "why" we think and feel the way we do about ourselves. She was just awesome on specific direction of how to view our past, present, and future. This is a must read for anyone interested in growing as a person.

    9. Absolutely fantastic, I highly recommend this. What a helpful, freeing, wonderful book.This book guides you through accepting the most difficult parts of yourself and freeing yourself to love yourself and others more deeply, be more accepting and compassionate. Has meditations at the end of each section.

    10. Some wonderful ways to come to grips with who you are as a person. I recommend this for anyone who has ever felt shame of who they are whether it be in the forms of anxiety, fear, or not feeling like you're a good person.

    11. This feels like a lecture and also very short meditations. It is not something to listen to while driving (because you don't want to fall asleep) and it is undoubtedly something I need relisten to and get totally different things out of. But it really didn't speak to me this time again.

    12. I have listened to these cd's three times now and the messages sink in more deeply with each listen. It is a wonderful pathway into using mindfulness and lovingkindness meditation practices to heal one's deepest wounds of shame, self-aversion and/or disconnectedness.

    13. Tara Brach has such a soothing voice! I am glad that I am listening to this book rather than reading it. The only drawback is that I cannot exactly practice the tonglens in the car on the way to work!

    14. Listened to the audiobook version of this. It's helpful in curbing neuroses of perfectionism and just learning to be patient with yourself the way you would be with others. I kept several key tracks on MP3 to listen to as a reminder later.

    15. I love this book and have just read it for a second time.This is a sweet kind loving book about healing shame. It's an audio book and includes meditations. I highly recommend it.

    16. Some great ideas in this book on how to say yes to life and open to your self. I am eager to read True Refuge.

    17. One of the core resources for our Tiara program this year. Gets at the heart of personal power and disempowerment for each person.

    18. This book might not be for everyone, but I enjoyed it. It guides readers to have a different perspective on a few things. A good tool for those beginning to meditate and having trouble with it.

    19. An absolute must for anyone interested in self confidence, happiness and mindfulness.I suspect this book is even more powerful for women readers.Highly recommended.
