  • Toward a Life of Self-Acceptance & Compassion with Terry Bean

    The seeds of self-acceptance and compassion lie within each one of us. Through the practices of awareness and kindness, we have the opportunity to cultivate this deep inborn care that over time naturally increases our well-being and lessens our suffering.

    Over the course of 6-weeks, we’ll explore some of the fruitful aspects and challenges of our self-acceptance and compassion for ourselves and others.  With the guidance and tools to develop a deeper sense of emotional resilience and well-being, we have the opportunity to nurture the seeds of growth that lead to changes, small and large.

    Everyone is welcome. No prior meditation practice is necessary. A resource and reading list will be provided.
