Tara Brach- The trance of addictive doing

In this video Tara Brach (psychotherapist and meditation teacher) shares about our society’s preoccupation with doing as opposed to being. I often write about our “addiction to busy”.  Tara Brach calls it the “trance of addictive doing”.  When I was part of the corporate world, I over-used technology and “overall business”.  My life is very different today.  Each week I set aside at least one day to pause and rest.  I do not work or make a bunch of plans for the day, I let it unfold. My daily meditation practice helps me slow down and enjoy each moment; I am committed to living my life more fully each day.

Bringing Awareness to Doing (08/20/2014) - One of the core domains of egoic trance is addictive doing - chronic activity driven by fear and wanting that keeps us from realizing a wholeness of Being. This talk looks at how addictive doing keeps us in the map of time, identified as a separate self, always on our way somewhere else.
