5.0 out of 5 stars A classic on mindfulness acceptance of difficult emotions, 18 Mar 2010
This review is from: Radical Acceptance: Embracing Your Life with the Heart of a Buddha (Paperback)
radical Acceptance is a good choice of words, because most of us do the exact opposite when we encounter our inner suffering: We resist it, turn away from it or try to suppress it, and all these activities simply strengthen the reactive pathways that cause suffering. Acceptance is about opening the mind and heart to be fully present for our suffering and for anything else, for that matter. This is what leads to healing and to the arising of inner intelligence and creativity. I would also recommend The Path of Mindfulness Meditation: Finding Balance in the Midst of Chaos: The Application of Mindfulness and Vipassana Meditation for Personal Transformation for those interested in exploring mindfulness meditation in more detail.
