Episode 147 of 455 episodes

TaraBrach (@TaraBrach)is a PhD in clinical psychology and one of the leading teachers of Buddhist thinking and meditation in the Western world. SheisthefounderoftheInsightMeditationCommunityinWashington,D.C. and her lectures are downloaded hundreds of thousands of times each month. I was first introduced to Tara's work by another guest on this podcast, Maria Popova. Soon thereafter, a friend and neuroscience PhD recommended her book,Radical Acceptance, as life-changing. It exceeded all expectations. It’s my hope that this tactical conversation offers you techniques for addressing loneliness, anger, self-hatred, the “trance of unworthiness,” and much more. Tara’s had a measurable impact on my life, and I wish the same for you. For those who know my fondness for Stoic philosophy, I think Tara’s work is a fantastic compliment to Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, and the other favorites.
