Tara Brach's Dharma Talks
Tara Brach
A pervasive but often invisible source of suffering in our culture is self-aversion. We are a busy culture, and we move through our life feeling anxious and dissatisfied, but not fully conscious of how we neglect or judge our inner experience. We suffer from a lack of belonging: to our own bodies, to each other and to the earth. When we practice Buddhist meditation, we learn how to listen deeply and hold our life tenderly.

On the spiritual path, all experience is an opportunity to awaken and express compassion. Widening the circle of compassion begins where we are-- with our inner life and the beings we are engaged with. Our practice is to see clearly what is true, the joys and the sorrows, and experience what arises with a kind and open heart.
