Join Tara Brach, beloved meditation teacher, psychologist, and author of Radical Compassion, for a discussion of her new book, Trusting the Gold: Uncovering Your Natural Goodness.
In Trusting the Gold, Tara Brach helps us uncover and trust the innate goodness in ourselves and others. She shares insights and practices for bringing nonjudgmental awareness, self-compassion, and connection into everyday life.
“In the midst of our deepest emotional suffering, self-compassion is the pathway that will carry us home. What a joy to pause and behold our basic goodness, and to see how it shines through each of us. Seeing that secret beauty, we fall in love with all of life.”Tara Brach, Trusting the Gold
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.
