Radical Compassion-Day 7

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

I enjoyed the practical way that Sandra Oh described her meditation practice. She acknowledged it taking a long time for her to feel comfortable, but now knowing that she “knows what to do” when feeling afraid or stressed. She focuses on the soles of her feet or “just the next breath” to bring herself to her body and the present moment. When we do that we are taking ourselves out of the trance of ruminating or worrying.

Tara’s meditation “RAIN on Blame”, was powerful. Only when we can recognize what might be going on for another person, what may be behind their behavior, can we truly come from a place of empathy. We still stay present with our own experiences, but we open ourselves up to the experiences of the “other.”

Good Stuff!
