Publisher's Summary

A beautiful audio program to help us uncover and trust the innate goodness in ourselves and others

We receive so many messages from our culture meant to divide us from one another or turn us against ourselves. Yet when we stop judging, stop avoiding, stop trying to resist that which makes us afraid or ashamed, we open to our true nature - a boundless field of awareness that is innately fearless and loving.  

This recognition of our essential human goodness may be the most radical act of healing we can take. “The gold of our true nature can never be tarnished”, says Tara Brach. “In the moments of remembering and trusting this basic goodness of our Being, we open to happiness, peace, and freedom.”  

In Trusting the Gold, Tara draws from more than four decades of experience as a meditation teacher and psychologist to share her most valuable practices for reconnecting with the beauty of our humanity - from timeless Buddhist wisdom to techniques adapted to the specific challenges of our modern age. Here, you’ll explore three pathways of remembering and living from your full aliveness: 

  • Opening to the Truth of the present moment 
  • Turning toward Love in any situation 
  • Resting in the Freedom of our natural, radiant awareness  

“Even in the midst of our deepest emotional suffering, self-compassion is the pathway that will carry us home,” she shares. “What a joy to pause and behold our basic goodness, and to see how it shines through each of us. Seeing that secret beauty, we fall in love with all of life.”

Tara delivers the gold

This is a lovely book with short meditations built in to help awaken the heart. The chapters are short, which make it easier to contemplate and focus on the theme Tara evokes.

The encouragement to find the gold within ourselves and in others can't be shared enough in a culture where so much conspires to make us hate ourselves.

I have all of Tara's books, as she is truly one of the best and most inspiring insight meditation teachers.

Highly recommend -- especially for stressed-out truth seekers short on time.

I continue to replay the Audible version and it helps me navigate life.

I love Tara’s work. It keeps me grounded and open to life. This is a compilation of many of her messages. She goes into much more detail in her earlier works so if this is someone’s first time reading or listening to her they may not fully get the depth of her messages. It was like short vignettes that reminded me of her life-changing concepts. I enjoyed and still enjoy it very much. In the first part especially her voice sounded like she was not quite over a sore throat. As the audio book continues her voice sounds more like her usual voice.

Gem for the Heart-Mind

This book is deep and oh so sweet. I have it in print and audio. I love both formats. The music that accompanies the audiobook is as calming and lovely as the illustrations are in the print book. Tara Brach’s warm and gentle voice definitely enriches the impact of her words. On my second time listening, I listened a little bit at a time, pausing to reflect and meditate along the way. Next time, and there will be a next time, I will sit down with my journal, listen a bit, reflect and write. There is a lifetime of gold in this little book that I trust. ❤️🙏🏻
