Many of us toil under the weight of deeply embedded unworthiness. We believe that there is something fundamentally wrong with ourselves.  No matter how much we achieve or become there is a nagging sense of personal inadequacy. 

Shame rumbles around in the unconscious and waits for opportunities to emerge as the suffering of self-hatred, self-criticism, relationship challenges, addictions and perfectionism.

Radical Acceptance, by Tara Brach offers a host of heartfelt, gentle and effective practices that allow one to open to the vast love and compassion that lie within ourselves.
