Tara Brach leads a guided meditation Getting Lost and Coming Back. In the stillness, feel your body breathing and bring your attention to the heart.


In Tara Brach’s meditation, ‘Getting Lost and Coming Back,’ we are guided deeply into the heart space to help reconnect us to what is most present and what is most true. Though the mind may attempt to escape this present moment (becoming caught up in narratives about the past or future), drawing our awareness to the heart helps to continually reaffirm the truth that we are only ever right in this moment.

Coming Back to the Heart

When we invite the mind to descend into the heart space, we reawaken ourselves to the aliveness of being. This descent also naturally encourages us to realign with the universal energy of love. Various loving kindness and compassion practices can help to reconnect us to this energy center – the one that swirls in the heart space – enhancing our sense of trust in the universe and encouraging us to open up to our direct experience.

Coming Back to the Body

Heightened body awareness (as Brach includes in this meditation) can help us to re-root ourselves in the present moment by reminding us of what is most real. By tuning into our direct sensory experience in this way, we ease any present moment experience of stress and anxiety that may be lingering within us as we return to a balanced state of being.
