The Deepest Acceptance: Awakening in Ordinary Life

JULY 7-12 2013

For more info and to book: https://www.hollyhock.ca/cms/Jeff-Foster.html


Can we unconditionally accept ourselves and each other, no matter what is happening in the story of our lives? Can we stop trying to ‘figure it all out’ and simply rest in the mystery of this sacred moment? Is it possible to stop seeking love, peace and enlightenment in the future, and discover them where you already are? Discover a simple way to say YES.

Through in-depth talks, intimate dialogues, and restful meditations, explore the true nature of acceptance, the root causes of our suffering, and the deep peace and stillness that can be found in every moment of our lives. Come to understand deep acceptance not as a passive surrender, but as an intelligent and creative emerging into life just as it is. Acceptance is not something that happens “one day”, or only happens to special people – it is always happening, if your eyes are open to see it.
Move towards a place of deep rest and compassion, even in the midst of pain, relationship conflict and addiction, and discover the true meaning of “awakening”— not as a future goal, but as a present-moment rediscovery of the obvious. Be inspired to stop trying to “do” acceptance…and start falling in love with “what has already been allowed.” Reorient yourself to who you really are in this moment – already perfect, whole, and free.
