the intro precedes a meditation of kindness

The meditation at the end is so very worthwhile. Best thing to learn how to be kind to myself in situations I find difficult, especially my addiction. It helped me stand back from myself in a loving caring way. RAIN is really useful and I am glad I purchased this. I could listen to it again and again to help heal my negative self.

Very soothing; helps if you have practiced some mindfulness mindful

Tara's voice is spacious. In addition to the very simple, yet clear instructions, she gives a personal example from her own life that helps make this easy to relate to. I like following her on her website as well. She continues to support mindful practices weekly.

Easily Accessible

The RAIN acronym is a hidden gem taught by many Mindfulness teachers , usually within the context of a greater Mindfulness practice. This isolation of RAIN allows you to apply healing- exactly where it hurts.

Good practice for healing triggers.

Tara Branch does a wonderful guided practice that can help find what triggers ,and keeps us stuck and repeating patterns that stop us from finding true peace and happiness in our lives and relationships.
Using mindfulness techniques we can identify what triggers us to return to behaviors that hold us from achieving true happiness in ourselves and with our relationships.

The power of RAIN

RAIN is an amazing meditation & emotional healinf technique & Tara is a wonderful teacher so this audible presentation is perfect - would have liked the mediation itself to be longer (it's about 15 minutes)

Too much chat

The lady talks non stop, which is a bit distracting when you are trying to meditate
