Publisher Comments:

Written by a charismatic Buddhist leader who is also a psychotherapist, this is the first book to explore how Buddhist teachings can heal the core feelings of "not good enough" that are epidemic in our society. "Believing that something is wrong with us is a deep and tenacious suffering, " writes Tara Brach at the start of this illuminating book. This suffering emerges in crippling self-judgments and personal conflicts, in addictions, perfectionism, and overwork--all the forces that keep our lives constricted and unfulfilled. RADICAL ACCEPTANCE offers a path to freedom, including the day-to-day practical guidance developed over Dr. Brach's twenty years of work with therapy clients and Buddhist students. Through personal stories and case histories, fresh interpretations of Buddhist tales, and guided meditations, Tara Brach shows how we can develop the balance of clear-sightedness and compassion that is the essence of Radical Acceptance--healing fear and shame, helping to build authentic relationships, and enabling us to live fully every moment of our lives.

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.
