    The Liberating Power of Conscious Intention – Part 1

    The Liberating Power of Conscious Intention – Part 1

    The Liberating Power of Conscious Intention – Part 1 - While we can’t change our past, we have the capacity in this moment to remember our deepest intention and seed the future. Intention can become the compass of our heart, guiding and creating our life experience. In these two talks we explore how we awaken mindfulness of intention and how, when we are caught in habits that create suffering, we can find our way home to the deep intention that heals and frees us. These two talks include reflections and practices that can bring the power of intention alive in your life.

    Radical Acceptance - Our Gateway to Love and Freedom

    Radical Acceptance - Our Gateway to Love and Freedom - Our capacity to realize the truth of who we are and to love fully, arises from moments of true acceptance. This means meeting our unfolding life with an unconditional, open and tender presence. This talk on Radical Acceptance explores how the trance of unworthiness contracts us away from presence, and how activating mindfulness and self-compassion with RAIN loosens the grip of self-aversion and awakens our hearts.

Maestra 🙏🏼

Wisdom in its purest and most authentic form. Tara is an angel on earth. Gracias, thank you.

Straight from the soul. Head and shoulders above and beyond the other meditation podcasts.

No clever or New Age musical signature, or commercial ‘color’ voice of introduction, or psycho speak, or pop ego imposing its imprint. Only a beautiful real voice inviting connection from soul to soul. Brava.

Thank You!

Tara’s work has helped me immensely. This is not only the most soothing podcast in existence, it actually gives you simple tools to use every day in one’s pursuit of mindfulness and mental health. Tara also breaks down heady concepts in a funny and accessible way. I had lapsed in my own Buddhist practice and she got me engaged again! Cannot say enough good things about this podcast!
