19 Jul Being Well Podcast: Uncovering Your Natural Goodness with Tara Brach
Learn how to “trust the gold:” recognizing and appreciating our essential human goodness, while resting in the key refuges of truth, love, and freedom, with Tara Brach on the Being Well Podcast with Dr. Rick Hanson.
We receive so many messages from our culture meant to divide us from one another or turn us against ourselves. Yet when we stop judging, stop avoiding, stop trying to resist that which makes us afraid or ashamed, we open to our true nature―a boundless field of awareness that is innately fearless and loving.
Tara Brach on the Being Well Podcast with Dr. Rick Hanson helps us learn how to “trust the gold:” recognizing and appreciating our essential human goodness, while resting in the key refuges of truth, love, and freedom.
About our Guest: Tara is the founder and guiding teacher of the Insight Meditation Community of Washington, D.C. Tara has taught all over the world, and is the author of four books, including her most recent book Trusting the Gold: Uncovering Your Natural Goodness.
