    Shame, Healing and Transformation (2020-07-01)

    Shame, Healing and Transformation (2020-07-01)

    Being at war with ourselves blocks us from evolving our consciousness and living from our hearts. This talk distinguishes between toxic and healthy shame, as well as shame about our individual self and our group identity. We explore how, with self-compassion and courageous honesty, we can respond to negative, painful feelings about ourselves in a way that serves awakening and alignment with our deepest values.

    Meditation: Calling on Our Inner Bodhisattva (2020-07-01)

    Spiritual Hope (2020-06-24)

    Spiritual Hope (2020-06-24)

    Spiritual hope opens us to possibility and energizes us to manifest our potential for love and wisdom. In contrast to attachment or egoic hope, which is the grasping for what will benefit a separate self, spiritual hope arises from trust in the openhearted awareness (bodhichitta) that is always and already within us. This talk explores how, as individuals and as a society, we can nourish spiritual hope, and create the grounds for healing and radical transformation.

    Sustaining Our Caring (2020-06-17)

    All transformation arises out of love; it is the energy of caring about life that moves us toward inner, relational and societal healing. With a primary focus on our radically re-enlivened movement for racial justice and equity, this talk looks at ways of remembering what matters and consciously nourishing our care.

    Meditation: Embodied Metta (2020-06-17)

    Lovingkindness becomes full when it is energetically experienced in our bodies. This meditation guides us in awakening the receptivity, warmth and openness of metta through our body, and then invites us to rest in the space of loving presence, as we open to whatever arises.

Saved my life

Through all that has been happening this year I have been alone and scared. Me Brach has been a light in a time of trouble, a salve for a broken heart and a hand to hold in hope.

A needed voice for our time

Having lived in the DC area for many years, I had the privilege to attend the IMCW Sangha for many years and attended several of Tara’s retreats. I simply didn’t know how good I had it until I moved away. Now, being on the west coast, these podcasts are such a sustaining force for me. Tara is such a gift and I encourage anyone interested in a spiritual life to listen with care.
