When Simple Words Lead to Transformation
“May I be happy no matter what.”
With these words, Tara Brach began to explore a new understanding that illness would change her life as she knew it.
In the audio clip below, Tara talks about “hitting the wall” as a point of discovery and how she arrived at a new, deeper understanding of her true self by staying in the moment.
As you’ll hear, she was sustained by the Tibetan saying, “Meet your edge and soften,” a twist on our professional practice, “Recognize and allow.”
Tara will be joining us for our upcoming series on Wisdom. In the meantime,
