One of my favourite meditation teachers is Tara Brach. Her career spans over 40 years as a mindfulness meditation teacher and a psychologist. Her latest, and apparently last book is called Trusting the Gold and it has inspired me to create a course so that I can help you uncover your gold.
In one of her talks, she speaks about the inspiration and title behind this latest book and I’d love to share it with you.
Her book and title were inspired by a huge clay Buddha in a monastery in Thailand. In 1757 it is believed that monks had covered the statue in clay to protect it so it appeared to be of little or no value when the Burmese army invaded. It wasn’t until 1957 when a group of monks were relocating the monastery that they discovered a glimmer of gold shining through a crack in the clay. The monk then used a chisel and hammer to remove the exterior to uncover a solid gold, Buddha. You can imagine his surprise.
The beautiful takeaway from this story is that under our armour there is gold waiting to be discovered. It can be waiting just under the surface for many years before we realise that what we are looking for has been there all along.
As a woman, you may be wearing armour every day without even knowing it. Our tendency is to protect our ego because that’s what we think we are. We identify with our ways rather than looking at what’s underneath them believing our limiting stories about who we are and what we are capable of when we are really capable of so much more.
The shift to freedom happens through not believing these outdated stories about ourselves anymore and peeling our armour off to reveal the gold underneath it so that you can create a life that’s rewarding. One that you will be proud of in years to come.
Each week we meet online in a group coaching setting making our way through the workbook that I have created especially for this course. By working in this way together you will have the opportunity to hear other women’s stories and struggles which will ultimately enrich your own experience.
This six-week course will take you on a journey of revealing the gold that’s in you. By bringing your self-awareness to the surface you have the tools to access the gold whenever you need it so that you can live a life with more joy, ease and contentment.
