Radical Acceptance Excerpt :

For many of us, feelings of deficiency are right around the corner. It doesn’t take much--just hearing of someone else’s accomplishments, being criticized, getting into an argument, making a mistake at work--to make us feel that we are not okay. Beginning to understand how our lives have become ensnared in this trance of unworthiness is our first step toward reconnecting with who we really are and what it means to live fully. —from Radical Acceptance “Believing that something is wrong with us is a deep and tenacious suffering,” says Tara Brach at the start of this illuminating book. This suffering emerges in crippling self-judgments and conflicts in our relationships, in addictions and perfectionism, in loneliness 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. Writing with great warmth and clarity, Tara Brach brings her teachings alive through personal stories and case histories, fresh interpretations of Buddhist tales, and guided meditations. Step by step, she leads us to trust our innate goodness, showing how we can develop the balance of clear-sightedness and compassion that is the essence of Radical Acceptance. Radical Acceptance does not mean self-indulgence or passivity. Instead it empowers genuine change: healing fear and shame and helping to build loving, authentic relationships. When we stop being at war with ourselves, we are free to live fully every precious moment of our lives.

The Heart of the Plum Village Teachings Excerpt :

Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh presents the 40 essential aspects of Buddhism in a series of beautiful, profound, and scholarly reflections on the nature of reality. Beginning with the First Tenet, "Space is not an unconditioned Dharma. It manifests together with time, matter, and consciousness," this book of principles contains the blueprint of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh's renewal of Buddhist teachings. For almost forty years during his exile in France, Thich Nhat Hanh has been the guiding teacher of monasteries of monks and nuns in the Buddhist tradition known as the Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism. During this time of teaching in the West, Thich Nhat Hanh identified, defined, and revised the teachings as a living, evolving body of Dharma. Underpinning their deceptively simple practices of mindful breathing, sitting, and walking lies a vibrant web of interconnected and poetic teachings. These teachings are a complete structure for a wholly modern Buddhism. The Heart of the Plum Village Teachings is a true textbook of refined contemplations on core Buddhist principles.
