To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I tried to read Tara's earlier book but got a bit bogged down in it. I'm getting on so much better with her new title (this one)! She writes from the heart and seems to have a real knack for putting her finger on so many of the issues that I (everyone?) struggles with as we try to live peaceful, fulfilling lives. This is a book I shall return to many times, I know: on my first read I have restrained myself from highlighting key passages - I suspect that when I do go back to do this, the pages will be covered in yellow! A really timely book for me. Hope it meets your needs too.
Excellent book, as expected from an excellent teacher! All the teachings and stories feel real, as if you knew th people involved. I like Tara's videos and books and I am not disappointed with this one either. Thank you, Tara Brach!
Tara Brach has become my spiritual teacher and this book is so hopeful for providing practical guidance on how to live a spiritual life. It looks in depth at many of the themes she discusses in her online podcasts, where we are encouraged to identify true and not false refuges or egoic quick fixes. This copy lives on my bed stand.
