Access to Compassion ~ Transformation through Acceptance
Practising acceptance is transformative. It is also the simple basis for naturally arising compassion. If we can accept our feelings as real, understandable and (more often than not) workable, we find that inner conflict and complexity drains less of our energy. Then we have more headspace and heartspace to be compassionate in the world.
As our mindfulness practice unfolds we develop greater awareness. This is like turning up a dimmer switch in the room of our mind. As we begin to see more clearly we may find ourselves surprised or disturbed by what is there. Practicing acceptance is a way to continue turning towards who we are and what we’re experiencing. Mindfulness gives us a taste for being aware and present in our lives. Acceptance offers the gentleness and resilience we need to continue through the ups and downs, to meet whatever comes. This opens up the path to compassion and insight.
Acceptance practice is something we need to circle back to again and again as we practise over the years. This course offers a chance to practise acceptance with a group of practitioner friends online, guided by an experienced teacher.
