    Self Forgiveness with RAIN

    Self Forgiveness with RAIN

    Self Forgiveness with RAIN - Our inability to forgive ourselves blocks healing and freedom. As we explore in this talk, the habit of judging and blaming ourselves traps us in fears, prevents intimacy with our world, and veils over the goodness and mystery of who we are. This talk includes several reflections that can support us as we cultivate a wise and forgiving heart.

    Meditation: Awake and Alive

    Meditation: The Space and Aliveness of Presence

    Meditation: The Space and Aliveness of Presence

    Meditation: The Space and Aliveness of Presence - We arrive in presence by deepening attention in the body; relaxing and awakening through a body scan. That presence deepens as we bring our attention to the space of awareness that includes the changing flow of sounds, sensations and feelings. In that wholeness of formlessness and form, we discover our natural being - open, awake and tender.

    Joy – Part 3 of Present Heart: The Universal Expressions of Love

    Joy – Part 3 of Present Heart: The Universal Expressions of Love

    Joy – Part 3 of Present Heart: The Universal Expressions of Love - Part 3: Joy – blossoms in the moments our hearts open boundlessly to reality, to the 10,000 joys and sorrows. This series reflects on four primary expressions of an awake, wise heart: lovingkindness, compassion, joy and equanimity. In each talk we explore the habitual patterning that blocks our full realization of these innate capacities, and the understandings and practices that nurture their unfolding.

    Meditation: The Heartspace Where All is Welcome

    Meditation: The Heartspace Where All is Welcome

    Meditation: The Heartspace Where All is Welcome - This meditation scans through the body, and awakens attention to the open, inclusive awareness that all life arises in. We then explore experiencing that openness in the region of the heart, saying yes to life and including whatever is here with unconditional presence (a favorite "open space" meditation from the archives).

I’m not sure who even introduced me to Tara but I’m so very thankful that they did. The universe working its magic perhaps. Please don’t ever stop sharing your gift with us.

Enduring gratitude

I am so grateful for the gift of this podcast Tara. You are my ‘go to’. The recent conversation with Mark Nepo was so moving and insightful, I have listened to it repeatedly (as I have many of your episodes). As a female bodied person, I value your lens on the world - a lens of collaboration, listening and relationship. I have learned so much. Thank you. Namaste. ❤️🙏

Namaste and blessings…….
