UK ~ Trusting the Gold: Uncovering Your Natural Goodness ~ Register Here! (online)
June 10, 2021 @ 7:00 pm – 8:45 pm UK/London BST
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.
In today’s traumatized world this homesickness expresses in our epidemics of loneliness, anxiety, depression and societal dividedness. We have forgotten our belonging to each other, to this living web, to the loving awareness that is our essence.
In this talk, Tara Brach will consider the individual and societal roots of our self-doubt, mistrust and fear-based beliefs. She will then explore how the RAIN practice can awaken a healing compassion, and the capacity to see basic goodness, the light of awareness that lives through all beings.
Our time together will include a talk, guided meditation and time for questions.
Trusting the Gold is available in the UK on June 3rd. Pre-order your copy of Trusting the Gold here!
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.
