One of the deepest forms of suffering in our culture is the pain of feeling that “something is wrong with me.” This, accompanied by our judgment of others keeps us at war with life. When not faced, our fears and blame prevent us from loving fully and fuel the violence that so plagues our world today.
Radical Acceptance is the capacity to see clearly what is happening in the moment and to accept what we see with love. Participants will explore this pathway to freedom through didactic presentation, experiential exercises, meditations and discussion.
IMCW retreats and workshops offer instruction in Buddhist meditation and talks on the awakening of our natural insight, love and wisdom. While the meditation practices derive from the Buddhist tradition, they are universal in orientation and address spiritual themes of concern to all contemplative traditions.
A workshop is not primarily silent (talking may be allowed during breaks and lunch) and may be focused on a special topic, such as applying meditation to relationships, emotional healing or physical well-being. Workshops may include a variety of formats, including different reflections and exercises and the sharing of experiences.
IMCW daylong workshops open for registration 12 weeks in advance. Information and registration here:
