A Guided Meditation to Enlightenment


A Guided Meditation by Tara Brach, PhD.

She takes us to the place where we are one with God and Nature,

which is our true self.

This is a four part, 4 hour 37 minute – Introduction to the Art, Science and Practice of Meditation (combined into one file).
Part 1: Mindfulness of Sensations and Breath. Part 2: Mindfulness of Emotions. Part 3: Mindfulness of Thoughts. Part 4: Living from Presence.



Tara earned a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the Fielding Institute, with a dissertation exploring meditation as a therapeutic modality in treating addiction. She went on to complete a five-year Buddhist teacher training program at the Spirit Rock Meditation Center, under the guidance of Jack Kornfield. Working as both a psychotherapist and a meditation teacher, she found herself naturally blending these two powerful traditions—introducing meditation to her therapy clients and sharing western psychological insights with meditation students. This synthesis has evolved, in more recent years, into Tara’s groundbreaking work in training psychotherapists to integrate mindfulness strategies into their clinical work.

In 1998, Tara founded the Insight Meditation Community of Washington, DC (IMCW), which is now one of the largest and most dynamic non-residential meditation centers in the United States.  http://tarabrach.com/about.html

  1. Hello again Denise,
    I’ve “reblogged” this post as a direct link from my Sidebar. Hope you like it?! And thank you for all your likings, we are visiting each other at the same time 🙂 Blessings, Katharina


  2. I’ve always wanted to find out more about meditation, and this seems an ideal way to do so. Thank you for the link to this video — I’m downloading it now for later (using deturl.com <- very useful tool!).


    • Yes, this meditation series is the best I have experienced. I still am replaying it for myself, and meditate with it. If you are seeking, this is the answer.
      I see that you love nature also! Are you going to D.C. on February 17th?
      I will be on BlogRadio that day, and I am all about healing our planet and ourselves.


      • The way I see it, the only way one can not love nature is if one loves money more. Sadly, it would appear that our planet is run by such folk.

        I live in the UK, so it can be argued that US politics is none of my concern. But I’m also a resident of planet Eaarth, and I do not wish to see my home further trashed. A while ago, i vowed never to fly again (a measure to reduce my own carbon footprint), yet, even so, I am considering flying to be in Washington DC on 17Feb2013. While cogitating, I’m doing what I can to spread the word about 350.org‘s latest protest, which I view as a last gasp effort to get some action moving to stop the insanity, even though it’s probably already too late. As ‘Yes’ says:

        “Without hope, you cannot start the day”.


      • Thank you for your thoughtful comment!
        The USA has to take a stand now!
        We are the consumers of most of the resources, and of products we love to buy.
        The U.S. has to wake up! We are capable of change! Not later, Now!
        It’s not too late, but it will be soon…
        I just wish we didn’t have to take down Nature, and the rest of the animal and plant kingdoms with us!
        Thank you again for commenting, and getting involved!
        Send a message to President Obama!
