The Art of Self-Acceptance

It’s very common to feel annoyed and frustrated with ourselves and want to be different than we are. For many of us, it is difficult to turn off the excessively self-critical voice in our heads, and these self-sabotaging thoughts can leave us feeling guilty or inadequate. Under such a heavy weight it is difficult to develop a heart filled with peace and love.

While we need to be aware of our shortcomings in order to grow, we need to be kind and gentle with ourselves at the same time. Buddha taught effective methods that enable us to truly accept ourselves, and these are essential before we can change on a deep level. Join us to learn practical Buddhist practices to help you couple self-acceptance with spiritual growth.
