'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.

I am so fulfilled by this book, and I strive to incorporate aspects of radical acceptance in my daily life. From this book, I find the theme to be the importance of loving individuals and refraining from criticism and judgment. I need to do a lot of work to become more emotionally mature so I can be a truly loving and accepting individual, this book provides me the encouragement to do so. From reading this book, I enjoy my interaction with friends, family, and strangers more. I see the people in my life more as fully complex individuals that do not benefit from the judgements I have made of them. I recommend this book to people on a healing journey from trauma.
