Accepting What We Cannot Avoid – A 4 week Course

There are many situations we would rather not have to deal with. Loosing someone we love, becoming sick, aging, financial difficulties, problems at work. Although these things may be inevitable in our lives we can do something about how we react to them. Patient acceptance doesn’t just mean gritting our teeth and putting up with things. It means learning to accept and work with the painful feelings that arise at those times. \these classes are open to everyone. They function well if you attend the entire course, however you can also drop in any week.
