Feeling Worthy – How to Get There & Three Very Helpful Videos


What creates or destroys the sense of belonging?  Brené Brown sees this sense as our most fundamental need and value. (A tip: start the video at about minute 3:10 to skip to the heart of the message.) This powerful talk leads me into the heart of how I see clients turn from struggle  to thriving.

In my practice, wounds reveal the damage Brown speaks about. During the course of treatment, nurturing a sense of belonging is a basic step to healing self-worth.  Another key element Brown speaks about is the importance of being “authentic”. The two go hand in hand.

Being authentic, or “real”, without pretence,  offers the possibility of connection,  a place where worthiness can grow. It is trustworthy, believable, secure. Tender new growth needs these qualities. That connection then fosters a sense of belonging. Together, my clients and I anchor these roots and nurture them into  thriving and worthiness.

In the following two  videos by Tara Brach, you will find a strong sense of authenticity. You’ll pick up her realness. She gives helpful steps to finding your own sense of worthiness and ways to work with judgmental thoughts.

Most important for a therapist , these videos also reveal her kindness. To be a safe container for the vulnerability of shame and fear takes steady, reliable kindness. To hold this space for you, is both my pledge and my honour.

Adding my treatments to Tara Brach’s practises, you can turn around your inner struggles in about half the time and lessen your chances of falling back. It’s a good insurance policy.

If you have any questions or reactions to these videos, please write them in the comment section. I’d love to hear from you and will get back to you soon.

Oh – and please share this with friends – you never know who might be needing this right now. It was because a friend shared Tara Brach’s videos that I was able to share them with you. 🙂 



About jm

Jane Moody offers advanced modalities of energy treatment, bodywork and counselling. A dynamic group of skills, gathered though extensive training (1800 hours of instruction in health therapies in addition to her BA.), can heal the roots of psychological suffering that prevent a satisfying life. The inspiration behind this work began in my early twenties after earning a B.A. from Vassar College in New York. I wanted to study both Medicine and Comparative Religion. I didn't do either but the interest stayed fresh. In the late 80's, I began my studies with a 16 weekend training leading to a certificate in Gestalt Therapy. A year later, I found a way to combine both earlier interests when I read Barbara Brennan's book, Hands of Light. I studied at her school for one year (1989/90) but decided against returning for family and personal reasons. That year, I had also completed a year's study in anatomy and physiology at Dalhousie University. By taking a taped course in "Awakening the Light Body", I was able to keep my knowledge growing. A few years later, I learned the bodywork of the Lightbody - "Flow Alignment and Connection". The next fall, it became possible to attend The School of Enlightened Healing in New York City (now in Asheville NC) and I graduated from there, 3 years later, with certification as a "Hands-on Healer" (1997). My practice began with Flow Alignment and gradually incorporated the new knowledge gained at this healing school in New York. Short weekend courses in Japanese Acupressure and Myofascial Release broadened my scope of bodywork techniques. In June of 2001, I graduated from A Society of Souls, Jason's Shulman's three year School for health professionals in Integrated Kabbalistic Healing. This powerful work is now the center of a range of healing skills that I bring to my clients. I live in East Chester, Nova Scotia with offices there and in Halifax, as well as a long distance practice by telephone.
