Tara Brach ‘walks her talk’ - she lives what she teaches.
I have been putting her teachings into practice over the past 3 years and have negotiated many challenges with more ease, love and care than I ever would have been able to before.
I got halfway through the book and realised I was reading the same thing over and over. I genuinely feel that RAIN could have been explained in a blog post or two - to force it into a whole book was a slog for the reader, and clearly just a way for Brach to capitalise on her practice.
I also think the neuroscience explanations are too simplistic. Much of the explanations are borrowed from other well-known trauma practitioners e.g. Dan Seigel, which makes me think that she has nothing new to bring to the table, and even the explanations she chooses to use are considerably dumbed down. I thought as a psychologist, Brach would have the capacity to explain complex terms to her audience, but it looks like she prefers to gloss over the science and any kind of complexity whatsoever.
I was looking for something radical, and this was not it. It was RAIN on every single page, every single chapter, which made me forget this this was supposed to be about 'compassion' to begin with. It felt more like a meditation than a learning experience, which was not what I was expecting.
