Publisher's Summary

The Practice of Self-Acceptance, Taught by a Buddhist Clinical Psychologist...How would your life change if you genuinely accepted yourself, just the way you are? According to Dr. Tara Brach, feelings of shame and unworthiness are the source of many problems we experience with our relationships, careers, creative endeavors, and most fundamentally, our spiritual unfolding. On Radical Self-Acceptance, this respected clinical psychologist and Buddhist meditation teacher shows you how to free yourself from the grip of your insecurities about being "good enough." With insights from both Eastern contemplative traditions and Western psychotherapies, Dr. Brach guides you through a full program of meditations and skills you need to become more compassionate toward the "unforgivable" parts of your self.As Dr. Brach says, the most difficult - and pervasive - challenge to Westerners today is the suffering caused by our feelings of unworthiness and self-aversion. Radical Self-Acceptance offers a way to break out of this emotional prison, so you can discover the freedom that comes with kindness and true appreciation of yourself and others.

What did you love best about Radical Self-Acceptance?

It is one of the best things I have done for myself. This audiobook helped me to understand my (strong negative) emotional reactions, to accept them and to "deal" with them.

What did you like best about this story?

Tara Brach is right on point describing the issues with and ways to self-acceptance. She breaks down our mislead thinking and behaviour and gives many examples for easy understanding. Short guided meditations help to deepen awareness of our emotions and to accept us as we are.

What about Tara Brach’s performance did you like?

Tara Brach's voice is soft and her speech flow is natural. It is easy to follow. She gives you time to reflect.
