Welcome to the Radical Compassion Challenge!

Please enjoy this introductory video session with your host, Tara Brach, as she orients you to the structure of the event and what to expect from day to day.

The RAIN of Compassion

“The RAIN of Compassion” practice applies mindfulness and self-compassion to challenging emotions. It is based on the acronym RAIN (Recognize, Allow, Investigate, Nurture) and provides a four-step practice that is accessible and effective, even at those times when mindfulness is most difficult to remember.
