I’m often asked the question in training courses “how can you be more accepting?”. Mindfulness talks about awareness and acceptance. It’s a good question. There are different types of acceptance. The first is psychological acceptance which is accepting something that happened before or accepting something that may be or will be happening in the future. That type of acceptance requires thought and it’s really based in the realm of time – and that’s the “usual” type of acceptance that we talk about.
Acceptance is a key part of mindfulness practice. This talk was originally broadcast on Facebook Live (video link here) explains what acceptance is and how to cultivate more of it.
