This talk explores how to work with the realm of feeling tone in your practice. You’ll learn why the body is so instrumental in liberation practices, what you can learn by deepening attention to sensations, a review of three primary anchors and the kinds of energy experiences that can arise when you relax and pay attention.

2019-07-10 The Path of Spiritual Surrender: Part 1 54:48
  Tara Brach
Cultivating a surrendering presence allows us to release the identity of a small, separate self, and open to the truth and fullness of who we are. These two talks explore misunderstandings about surrender (such as the fear that we will become passive or condone injustice) and the practices that create the grounds for surrender, emotional healing, transformational activism and spiritual freedom.

2019-07-10 Meditation: Befriending Your Inner Life 16:10
  Tara Brach
This meditation establishes a gentle and caring presence through bringing the image and felt sense of a smile to various domains in the body. We then settle with the breath, and practice relaxing with whatever arises, letting life be just as it is. The underlying intention is to regard all experience with a clear, interested and friendly attention. The gift is a homecoming to our naturally loving presence.

2019-07-03 Meditation: Receiving Life in Open, Awake Awareness 19:44
  Tara Brach
This meditation awakens a receptive attention to the senses, starting with physical sensations and opening to sound. Then we sense how open awake awareness is receiving the moment to moment arising and passing life. In the final part of the practice, we explore how awake awareness is receiving the experience of our heart and offer blessings to our inner life and all living beings.
