Sounds True and Tara Brach present a 10 day radical compassion challenge.

Kristen Neff emphasized the three components of self-compassion: Kindness, Common Humanity, and Mindfulness. I resonated with the importance of not skipping any of the three or our experience will not be beneficial.

Another thing that popped out for  me was her idea that “people hold onto hate, because once hate is gone, they’ll feel the pain and they don’t want to feel it.” Makes sense to me why hating someone is “easier” that forgiving and letting go.

I have done Tara’s RAIN meditation many times. Today was especially helpful to remember the “allow” part, instead of rushing right to nurture.

Good Stuff!!
