Radical Compassion

by Tara Brach


The demands of the modern world often mean we are living on autopilot mode. This causes us to become stuck in our habits, even if they are making us unhappy. Psychologist Tara Brach specializes in bringing together Western psychology and Eastern spirituality. She teaches people how to use mindfulness to build a happier life.

In Radical Compassion, Brach breaks mindfulness down into four practical steps that form the acronym RAIN. Brach teaches us how to apply the practice of RAIN to our everyday lives, inner selves, and relationships with those around us.

The deepest transformations in our lives come down to something very simple: We learn to respond, not react, to what is going on inside us.
