Book Description

28 Aug 2003
In the West, most of us have suffered the fear of not being 'good enough', feeling insecure about our appearance, our sexuality, our intelligence, our spiritual progress or - often most importantly - being worthy of love. When these feelings of insufficiency or self-aversion are strong, we fear abandonment and rejection. Many people have already found the Buddhist perspective on our emotional life to be extremely valuable - and this book will be a major practical contribution to the subject.

Do not be mislead - this book is exactly the same as Radical Acceptance: Embracing Your Life with the Heart of a Buddha. It's just marketed wrong, and I'm not sure why this is.

But please do not let this put you off the book. Either copy would be a fantastic addition to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars If there is one book to read..... 2 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read many books on self help, healing, nurturing, guiding, and spiritual awakening, I have at last found the one book I wish had been around 40 years ago. I would have benefited from her teachings and become aware of what I now see as a way to just be. She combines her wonderful insight from two perspectives. The psychological and the Buddist Way and she does this with a gentle and understanding nature towards modern living today. The examples and stories help one get to grips with how the awakening of the real self can be realised. It may take time to absorb fully, but it is well worth it.

1.0 out of 5 stars I was misled by the title. 21 Nov 2009
Tara Brach is a perfect writer. Her book, Radical Acceptance..., is great in many ways. But Amazon sells "Radical Acceptance: Awakening the Love That Heals Fear and Shame" and "Radical Acceptance: Embracing your life with the Heart of Buddha" as two different books. They are exactly the same, word for word. Now I have two copies of the same book only with different titles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 20 Jun 2014
By Car41
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellent book which goes into detail about this one concept that is difficult to understand. This concept is used in DBT but it's books do not go into enough detail to really grasp. There are also short exercises that are helpful. Love it on the kindle as lovely to press play and listen to. Would recommend if you're finding it difficult to grasp this complex but essential part of DBT, Buddhism or just want to look deeper.
