How do you deal with an unexpected turn of events such as the loss of a job, the end of a relationship or the sudden death of a loved one?
Does an old trauma still rule your psyche and cause you to unconsciously react inappropriately to different circumstances in your life? Do you react with fear and resistance, and automatically try to avoid the pain, which only makes it grow stronger?
Most people resort to habit patterns of blame, acting out the ego’s secret emotional addiction to anger, worry or anxiety, or to two key identifications of ego: a deep feeling of unworthiness and a feeling of abandonment.
Join Paula today as she explores with Tara Brach, Ph.D., founder of the Insight Meditation Community in Washington D.C., the only way to find genuine lasting relief to all of life’s most difficult challenges. The author of Radical Acceptance, Tara will share some of the key methods in her new book, True Refuge, for contacting the profound stillness that lies below our otherwise unruly thoughts and emotions.
She will explain how we can experience the true refuge of silent awareness, that is capable of limitless love, and guide us through an ancient Buddhist process for letting go of fear.
