Jan 25, Feb 1, Feb 8, 7:00-8:30 PM: Acceptance as a Spiritual Discipline
Radical Acceptance can be defined as the compassionate acceptance of reality as it is in the present moment. A practice that is an important and effective skill for navigating the small and large challenges of life.
But it is one thing to define Radical Acceptance, and quite another thing to understand and practice it. How do you do it? What are its real benefits? Why might it even be thought of as an important spiritual discipline?
Janice Bainbridge and Paul Marvin will lead three discussion, practice and Q&A sessions tackling these questions. Janice is a practicing counselor with experience teaching and mentoring people in Radical Acceptance practice, and Paul has worked with teens and adults over the years as a catechist, spiritual director, retreat leader, and prayer counselor.
