I just snagged a copy of Tara Brach’s Radical Compassion: Learning to Love Yourself and Your World with the Practice of R.A.I.N., and I can’t put it down! It is amazing how sometimes the right book falls into the right hands at the right time! She is the founder and a senior type manager at the Center for Mindful Living in Washington, DC (where I live) and here is what her website says about RAIN: an easy-to-learn four-step meditation that quickly loosens the grip of difficult emotions and limiting beliefs. Yeah, see what I did there? 😉 Oddly enough, I put myself on the DCPL waitlist a few months ago after hearing about this book from a different podcast and I have had it checked out for almost three weeks. I decided to read it on my weekend jaunt to NYC (what else to do on the 4-hour bus ride?) and I almost fell out of my icky blue fabric seat when I realized the connection to the PPVE.
