Many of you who read Talk Therapy regularly have heard me talk about mindfulness and its benefits in therapy and life. I’m happy to say that I’ve recently come across a fantastic resource for anyone interested in mindfulness and would love to share it! Some of you may have heard of Tara Brach – she’s a psychologist and meditation teacher who does a fabulous job bridging the gap between the two. Her book, Radical Acceptance, is a personal favorite and one that I recommend often to clients.
Tara also leads weekly dharma talks at a Unitarian church in Maryland. And – lucky us – they have about a year’s worth of archived talks available for FREE download or listening. Each talk has a about an hour of “lecture” followed by a topic-specific meditation that you can follow at home as a guided experience. My wife and I have started working our way through them over the past month or so. Here’s the link: http://www.imcw.org/audio/audioarchives.html
I hope that some of you may enjoy this as much as we have!
