Book Release: Trusting the Gold – Wednesday Night Live Talk and Q/A with Tara Brach ~ Register Here!
June 9, 2021 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm EDT
The Buddha described the core of our suffering as not remembering who we really are. We leave home when we live in limiting stories that cover over our natural wisdom and armor our heart.
This event, offered both via Zoom platform and livestream, will look at the individual and societal roots of our self-doubt, mistrust and fear-based beliefs. We’ll then explore practices that awaken the loving awareness that is the source of all being.
Our time together will include a talk, meditation, guided reflection and time for inquiry and sharing.
Book Description ~ Trusting the Gold by Tara Brach
If you’ve ever felt trapped in a “trance of unworthiness”—filled with judgment about yourself and the others, or always feeling a sense of “not-enoughness”—you’re not alone. Yet I have seen time and again that we can learn to dissolve the layers of judgment and doubt to discover beneath them clarity, presence and love—which is the “gold” of our true essence.
What helps us uncover that gold? How can we learn to trust the pure awareness and love, the basic goodness that is our very essence? AND HOW CAN WE LEARN TO SEE THIS SAME SACRED PRESENCE IN ALL BEINGS, ALL LIFE? These questions have shaped my spiritual path, and in Trusting the Gold I share my own challenges and discoveries in stories that I hope you’ll find meaningful on your own journey.
In the book, I invite you to explore this path through the lenses of Truth, Love and Freedom. We begin with learning to recognize the Truth of our experience, by opening to life, just as it is. Then we discover how to awaken our inherent capacity to meet this ever-changing life with Love. This unfolding of presence and love reveals the Freedom of our true nature.
“The gold of our true nature can never be tarnished. When we remember this basic goodness of our Being, we open to happiness, peace, and freedom.”Tara Brach, Trusting the Gold
As we take this inner journey back to our true nature, we change the way we live, move and act in our lives. The more we learn to trust this loving presence as the truth of who we are, the more fully we can will call it forth in ourselves and in all those we touch.
