Radical Acceptance: Embracing Your Life with the Heart of a Buddha by Tara Brach
Radical Acceptance: Embracing Your Life with the Heart of a Buddha

Michael McGarry, August 9, 2009

This is a wonderful book for anyone who wrestles with issues of self-love and self-acceptance. Dr. Brach is a engaging writer who illustrates her points with stories from her own practice as a therapist. She demonstrates a whole new way of being, a whole new way of relating to our experiences and the people around us. She makes abundantly clear that self-love is not self-indulgence, but rather an intelligent and pragmatic approach to our inner world. She discusses becoming more aware of one's body & one's bodily experiences; being more mindful and conscious in the experience of desires; and even how mindfulness and acceptance can help in experience of fear and physical pain. After each chapter, she has one or two guided meditation exercise to ground the ideas experientially in the reader. Anyone who made an ongoing habit of even a handful of these meditation exercises would transform their entire life. Overall, this book is a gift in many ways, and it has become my new favorite book to give to friends and family members. I heartily recommend this book.
