A basic tenet in Buddhist psychology is that our suffering arises out of a mistaken sense of who (or what) we are. Perhaps the most pervasive expression of this suffering is the perception that we are personally deficient or unworthy. The pathway to healing and freedom includes the cultivation of mindfulness and compassion—attentional trainings that loosen our limiting sense of identity. As we bring these facets of a meditative attention to habitual patterns of fear and shame, we discover what is called our “true refuge,” the timeless and loving space of our own awakened nature.
During this presentation Dr. Brach will explore how our attempts at finding security and love often further separate us from true refuge and how the different components of meditation can serve to carry us home. This presentation will include didactic presentation and guided reflections.
