Despite our best intentions, we often have trouble dealing effectively with strong emotions. What if you had a conscious, skillful way to respond in times of anger, fear, jealousy, shame, and other powerful emotions? Meditations for Emotional Healing gives us a collection of insights and practices for bringing compassion, clarity, and understanding to our emotional lives-instead of expressing or repressing them in unhealthy ways.
I have been using Tara Brach's work, along with several others, to untangle the mystery of PTSD, fibromyalgia and unexplained debilitating pain. This, along with Radical Self-Acceptance, which sometimes overlaps with this, are the keystones of my healing. I have noticed considerable decrease in pain when used in conjunction with a chakra/gong meditation I found here. I have not experienced anything that had to power to break through cognitive defenses and so lovingly get to the heart of matters as Tara Brach's cds combined with other forms of meditation. You just have to keep practising and being aware of subtle changes in your body, and pain starts moving.

I like this book because it was simple to understand the information was powerful. It spoke to my soul and helped me to move farther down the road with my interpersonal healing. The meditations were peaceful and guided me inward helping me to get in touch with my emotions.

I love Tara and her way of teaching, her soothing voice and method of delivery. My only critique is that I wish the meditations were longer. But her teachings are wonderful and this series has some helpful, albeit rather brief, insights and techniques for dealing with trauma and challenging feelings.
I am going through an extremely hard time in my life grieving my son. I have listened to this audible over over and it has helped me tremendously. I love Tara’s calm voice and the meditations are healing.
This is really helpful for everyone strugling with traumas, difficult emotions that are heavy to carry alone. Really really helpful!!
