Tara Brach's Dharma Talks at Insight Meditation Society - Retreat Center
Tara Brach
A pervasive but often invisible source of suffering in our culture is self-aversion. We are a busy culture, and we move through our life feeling anxious and dissatisfied, but not fully conscious of how we neglect or judge our inner experience. We suffer from a lack of belonging: to our own bodies, to each other and to the earth. When we practice Buddhist meditation, we learn how to listen deeply and hold our life tenderly.

Our longing for communion arises out of loving life and is the energy that liberates our spirit. By becoming intentional in inhabiting and expressing this longing, we relax openly into the truth of belonging.
