Discover Freedom: An Experiential Journey of Acceptance in Action


“The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely.” – Carl Jung


“For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is to let it rain.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Recall a time when you felt truly accepted. It’s that powerful combination of contentment, joy, and calm that floods in when we are welcomed into a new community, or told by someone we care about that we are enough, just the way we are.


Perhaps even more vividly do we recall the opposite of acceptance, those times when we felt ostracized or excluded from a person or community we wanted to be a part of. What does that exclusion do to someone? What does it do to you?


Now what happens when we turn this feeling around? What happens when we turn acceptance into an action? When acceptance becomes something we do, how does that action have the potential to transform our lives? to free us from the burdens we were laboring under?


In this five-week program, we’ll experience, explore, and share the power of radical acceptance from these different angles. We’ll learn to accept ourselves, so that we can accept others. We’ll reflect on those aspects of existence we struggle to accept, to discover the light dawning just beyond.


Only when we radically accept can we truly be free. Join us, and discover the transformative power of acceptance for yourself.
