For March – Radical Compassion by Tara Brach

During the month of March, my mindfulness classes will be taking the lead from the book Radical Compassion by Tara Brach. Radical Compassion is a heartfelt and deeply practical book offering the antidote to today’s stressful times: the easy-to-learn, four-step meditation practice, RAIN.

Radical Compassion introduces the RAIN meditation as a powerful spiritual technology for cultivating compassion in the face of difficult emotions, limiting beliefs and conflicts with others. Through the acronym RAIN (Recognize-Allow-Investigate-Nurture) we can awaken the qualities of mature compassion—an embodied, mindful presence, active caring, and all-inclusive heart.

In my Monday and Friday mindfulness classes, we’ll be exploring the nuances of this practice as Tara outlines in the book. I will also post about, most likely not everyday like I have for the Real Happiness Challenge, but a few times during the week. Some of you maybe affiliated with My Vinyasa Practice where I teach my mindfulness classes, if you are a student or alumni, there is a book study group meeting on March 25th for the US and March 26th for Europe.

Tara has a free study guide available, you can download it here Radical Compassion Study Guide.
