    Tara Brach (born ) is an American psychologist, author, and proponent of Buddhist is a guiding teacher and founder of the Insight Meditation Community of Washington, D.C. (IMCW). Dr. Brach teaches her Wednesday night meeting in Bethesda, Maryland. Her colleagues include Jack Kornfield, Sharon Salzberg, Joseph Goldstein and others in the Vipassana or Insight. For people that want to get deeper and really nerd out on Buddhist meditation, I always suggest a book called Mastering the Core Teaching of the Buddha: An Unusually Hardcore Dharma Book by one of my teachers, Dan Ingram. It’s one of the most high-level, technical manuals on meditation written by a contemporary teacher that I’ve come across.

    Central to Buddhist practice is training the capacity to let go of clinging. Sooner or later, the first aspect of Buddhist meditation, knowing the mind, will reveal how and where clinging is present. Some of the more painful forms of grasping are clinging to such things as pleasure, desire, self-image and judgments, opinions and ideals, people. Great book, as a Christian who a) suffers from depression and b) uses secular buddhism to help my prayer life (meditation can help). First 2/3 of the book were excellent and purpose drive, the back third lacks drive and meanders and is more navel-gazey. Even with that lack of clarity in the back stretch, an excellent read and worth your time.

    Other popular meditation practices include guided meditation — either in-person or digital versions — yoga, stretching, visualization, chanting and walking meditation. The good news for people. Insight into impermanence is central to Buddhist practice. Buddhist practice points us toward becoming equanimous in the midst of change and wiser in how we respond to what comes and goes. In fact, Buddhism could be seen as one extended meditation on transience as a means to freedom.
