What IS" workshop
with Michael Jeffreys
“All is already accepted by LIFE or it could not BE... seeing this is Freedom itself. Beyond the mind's interpretation of right and wrong, good and bad, positive and negative, ALL simply IS.”
We suffer when we believe life needs to be a certain way in order for us to be happy. However, Life itself never has a problem with Life! All that appears in the present moment is fully allowed by Life, or it could not be!
"But Michael, how do I accept this moment if I truly don't find it acceptable!?" The answer is realizing that the mental character in the mind will NEVER find this moment enough. Because if it did, it would be out of a job! The seeker's job is to seek, but NEVER find. Finding would mean its death.
However, when even the thoughts in the head are allowed to be fully as they are, what you discover is that there is space enough in you for everything. All feelings, thoughts, sensations your children and so lovingly embraced however they appear or as whatever form. This truly is, as Jeff Foster talks about, an acceptance so radical that NOTHING is left out.
Other Topics We Will Cover Include:
- How do I stop identifying with my thoughts?
- Some emotions feel so overwhelming that I cannot possibly accept them as they are too painful... what to do?
- How do I stop other people from "triggering" me?
- I know of the peace/freedom you talk about, but it seems to come and go. Is it really possible to abide in this place of peace 24/7?
If you would like to join us Saturday, June 29, from 1-4pm at Westwood Park (1350 Supulveda Blvd.) in West LA. (We will meet at the "Aidan's Playground" sign, in the children's play area), for the "Peace Through Acceptance of What IS" workshop. Please pre-pay via paypal to reserve your spot (*if you don't have paypal, you can pay at the park).
Note: Due to the size of the picnic tables at the park, the class size is limited to 12 (5 on each side and 2 on the end in folding chairs).
Hope to see you there!
