Tara Brach is a meditation teacher, psychologist, and author.
Tara earned a PhD in clinical psychology from the Fielding Institute and went on to complete a five-year Buddhist teacher training program at the Spirit Rock Meditation Center. 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 psychological insights with meditation students. 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. Tara is the author of several books, including Radical Acceptance.
