2007-08-22 Touching Enlightenment With The Body 1:13:49
  Tara Brach
Our suffering arises from the unseen, unfelt parts of our experience- our unlived life. This rejected energy is stored in our bodies and prevents us from living wakefully and wholeheartedly. By bringing a courageous, mindful presence to bodily sensations our energies untangle and flow freely. Rather than a frightened resisting "self" we rediscover our full aliveness, connectedness and luminosity of Being.

  Tara Brach

  Tara Brach
Our life experience is shaped by the stories we tell ourselves and the underlying belief that "something is wrong with me." Meditation allows us to recognize and release the grip of the stories that confine our sense of wholeness, peace and inner freedom.
