Tara Brach: Making it RAIN

"Tar. Brock is a giant in the meditation. World and deservedly so she's got a PhD HD in clinical psychology. She treats people one on one and in psychological or a therapy setting. She also has done deep Buddhist teacher training and has gone on to found the insight meditation community of Washington which is an immensely popular community center in Washington has extremely popular podcast. And she's got a new book. It's called radical compassion so that's her bio but before we dive into the actual discussion. I want to read you a little bit of what I wrote about her. In my first I book ten percent happier because it's going to be up a lot of what is interesting about what follows in this conversation so I I encountered her when I went to a this is before I even and really started meditating that much I went to a meditation event here New York City and she was up on stage. I had a bit of a negative reaction. Here's what I wrote. The opening opening speaker was a woman in her fifties named Tara Brach. She had long brown hair and pleasant Semitic features. She was holding forth in a creamy clawing tone. The style was astonishingly effected artificially soft and slow as if she were trying to give you a rocky massage with her voice she exhorted us to love ourselves. Quote Unquote invited us to close our eyes and trust in the Oceanus in the vastness in the mystery in the awareness in the love so that you could really really sense. Nothing is wrong with me. I couldn't bear to look over at Jason. That was the friend I brought to. The event who I imagined must be silently cursing my name Brock. It closed with a poem that dramatic pause and finally a self serious Soto. voce thank you. So that's what my first impression of her was. I then ended up going back to the event the next day and to my surprise Tara ended up explaining something that was deeply useful so to me. I was aware of the basic theory of how mindfulness could work that. You could view your feelings non-judgmental but they didn't really understand how to apply it in my life and she explained it in a way that knocked it out of the park so when we read that section to my profound surprised. The person who unlock this mystery for me was Tara Brock driven by some unfathomable masochistic urge. And even though I knew mark my friend Mark Epstein wouldn't be speaking I had dragged myself self back to the ballroom for the second day of the conference at First Brock was driving me nuts with all of her ostentatious head bowing bell ringing and Nama stay saying but then she redeemed herself. She nailed the method for applying mindfulness in acute situations albeit with somewhat dopey acronym rain are Dr for recognize a for allow I for investigate and for non identification recognize self explanatory using my David Westin example. Sample David West and was my boss at the time in those moments after are even in the best light quite ambivalent meeting job number one was simply to recognize my my feelings by the way I had recently in this in. This story had a meeting with my boss that was my then. Boss was semi successful. Jabber one was simply to acknowledge my feelings. It's like agreeing to pause in the face of what's here and just acknowledge. The actuality said Brock. The first step is admitting it allow is where you lean in the Buddhist. Were always talking about how you had to let go but what they really meant is let it be or as brock put it in her inimitable. Way offer the inner whisper of Yes. The third step investigate is where things got truly practical sticking with the Western example sample again he was my boss at the time after. I've acknowledged my feelings and let them be the next move. would be to check out how they're affecting my body. Is it making my face. Hot My chest buzzy my head throb. This strategy sounded intuitively correct to me especially given that I was a guy who's been diagnosed post war. Depression had manifest itself in flu like like symptoms. The final step not identification meant seeing that just because I was feeling angry or jealous or fearful that did not render me a permanently. I angry or jealous person. Those were just passing states of mind. The Brock plans seemed eminently workable to me at as grading as she had seemed at first I now found on something comforting about her manner. She was after all a trained professional in both Buddhism psychotherapy that's Connor who had spent her life helping people? I realize is with a hot blast of self directed opprobrium that yet again I had been unfair. Okay so you're going to hear me. Talk to Tara about her. Her feelings about what I wrote. Yes kinda almost done. I promise you're going to hear me. Talk to Tara about her feelings about what I wrote and then over the course of the interview we're GonNa come back and ways they were very meaningful eating. I think to both of us to how I reacted to her feelings. And we're also GONNA talk about a lot more including her new book about how to use this rain technique in your own life so now to the delight of Connor. I'm GonNa shut up and here. Is Our Brooke. Nice to see you and you. I think this is the second time we've met. The first time we met in. My memory was backstage at some meditation event. And I remember being a little hesitant because I saw you there and I thought I made fun of her a little bit in my book and I didn't know how it was going to go but then you gave me a big hug. So a where are we with that are you. Are You mad at me for the little. It was actually a really great experience for me. Because you know everyb- it's fame and disrepute and you know and you made fun of me some and you also appreciated the thing that most matter to me. Which is the practice of rain and I figured you know I can survive this well? I've talked about this a lot a lot on the show. So my apologies to folks had to hear me hold forth on this too much but I got a three. Do you know what a three sixty review is. If you've ever heard I got one and it basically all the people in our many of the people in my life anonymously commented on my strengths and weaknesses and one of the weaknesses was being judgmental. It'll actually called myself out for that. I just read the passage where I described you in the book and at the end of the passage I basically say we. She's introducing reducing me to this incredible technique. Which is called rain which will dive into and look at me? What a judgmental jerk I am but you I think were really an early victim victim of mine On the score in the meditation world and there was a message for me in it too. Because I'm basically out to wake up and be able to to present things in a way that are going to reach people and I suspected for you my way was had too much of a A A kind of Louis to sweet flavor and I realized. Oh there's going to be a message. People like Dan that that's the way they receive it and I think as we keep ingrowing we just get more flexible ways. We present things so there was room for that. Yes I agree I think yeah you have a way of talking about this that works for hundreds of thousands of people my way of talking about it or thinking about it or acting it out in the world is very different and that's the importance of having many folks out there talking about the Dharma land on this new to me too. It's really it's really exciting to me. Actually and it's exciting when the dialogues happen because basically we're free when we all stretch say more go. Yeah the more first of all as a teacher. The more flexibility I have in how I present things in the more sensitive. I am to the different ways. People receive things the more effective I can be and as a practitioner For instance this morning I was talking to my husband about a book that right now. I'm Reading For the twentieth time. And it's I am that by three nurse Saga Datta and it's a book about non dual reality about seeing how it really constantly looking at. How am I getting identified right in this moment like really seeing past The coagulation of self often recognizing okay. I'm not this particular personality. I'm not this body and recognizing a larger sense of being and so we were talking about at that and I then I just said you know that is fantastic when my mind is quiet enough but if I'm caught in some anxiety for me to say oh I'm not this. Anxiety actually is a subtle way of pushing it away and what's more important as for me to feel the wave of anxiety and in some way I say okay this belongs this is part of this is a wave in the ocean you know and to actually feel it an opening to it and not resisting the identification actually dissolves so the pathway taught in the book that I'm riveted by right. This moment isn't the pathway at any given moment Qatar will at work for many people when they're stuck in a certain way so it just having that Keeping the whole domain of practice actes fresh though in any given moment. There's a an intuitive way to respond to what's arising now that actually deepens freedom and not going by road really is is actually what works in the most deep ways

And when you consider radical compassionate living compassion, there. Two major components and one that it's bodied that there's a visceral quality of tenderness and the other main quality is that it's all inclusive, which means that as we open and feel that tenderness for one expression of suffering, it's really a tenderness that has avast quality that includes all suffering everywhere. And so- practices the cultivate radical compassion are actually practices of undoing our resistance. To contacting vulnerability, the alchemy of compassionate that arises naturally when we allow ourselves to connect with the former ability that's here. So. The compassion practices actually undo the resistance, and there's another undoing which is the the grasping has keep on holding onto experience versus letting it really beheld by the wholeness of of being so compassion practices undo grasping to.
