Acceptance Meditation: Free 25-minute Practice | Elizabeth Pyjov, JD, MTS


8:00 pm – 8:25 pm

About this event


Whatever you accept becomes your source of strength. An attitude of acceptance of the present moment is a big part of a Buddhist practice. By releasing expectations, we engage with infinite possibility that is present in the current reality. Acceptance is a freeing practice and we hope you get to experience that.

Together we will spend 5 minutes on what acceptance is in the Buddhist tradition and 20 minutes doing a meditation together. The event is free and open to everyone. All are welcome to join, from beginners to advanced meditators. You will receive a zoom link once you register. Hope to see you there for heart and awareness practice!
