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.

Tara Brach knows how to speak to the heart

What did you love best about Radical Self-Acceptance?

This book vividly captures the pervasive wave of self aversion that has gripped many of us. It also provides an attainable way out of self aversion and into true self acceptance.

Clear and inspiring

How pleased I am to discover the work of Tara Brach on Audible. Her words are truly life changing. I try to begin every day listening to some of this book and have found it not only uplifting and inspiring but a huge help in understanding myself and in practising self compassion.

almost perfect

One minor criticism: gong/bell at end of the meditations made late-night listening less enjoyable, as the material is otherwise brilliantly suited to soothing a bout of insomnia if it weren't for the sudden unexpected harsh gong sound just as you're finally drifting off!

Overrated, not suitable listen while driving etc.

I think this book is bit over rated. I bought it by looking at reviews but didn't find that great at all. May be, I was not expecting long pauses in the book reading for breathing and meditating. I listen while driving and walking, obviously don't want those frequent long pauses asking me to lie down calmly and breath!
