It dazzles my night sky
Making me wish
For the moment
To never end~ ~ ~My Love Stands Patiently Like A TreeMy Love stands
Like a tree that waits to be kissed
By the rays of your sun
Or to be touched
By the Light
Of your glowing moon

JEFF FOSTER MEETINGS IN THE USA 2012How do we stop running away from the mess of lifeour pain, our predicaments, our frustrations, our failures, even our longing for freedom and enlightenmentand start flowing with all of it?
Is it possible to find an effortless yes to this moment, no matter how challenging our lives become?
Is it possible to stop seeking love, peace and enlightenment in the future, and discover them where you already are?THE DEEPEST ACCEPTANCE:RADICAL AWAKENING IN ORDINARY LIFEJeff Foster invites us to take a fresh look at our present experience and discover the ocean of who we really are: a non-dual awareness that has already allowed every wave of thought and emotion to arrive. Just as the ocean accepts every wave, teaches Jeff, so too has our awareness already allowed and accepted what is here. Jeff talks of deep acceptance not as a passive surrender, but as an intelligent and creative emerging into life just as it is. And it is not something that happens one day, or only happens to special people it is always happening, if we have eyes to see it.Recognizing ourselves as the ocean of deep acceptance radically transforms and simplifies the way we see the world our relationships, how we communicate, our attitude towards physical pain and depression, how we deal with addictions, and our search for spiritual enlightenment. Candid, thoughtful, humorousand deeply compassionate toward those searching for a way out of sufferingJeff inspires us to stop trying to do acceptance and start falling in love with what has already been allowed. His simple, accessible and direct teachings point us back to who we really are in this moment already perfect, whole, and free.Silence, laughter, lightness, and a sense of real intimacy, honesty and friendship are the hallmarks of encounters with Jeff. His meetings are very spontaneous and informal, and there are plenty of opportunities to share and ask questions, if you are so moved. And of course, if you just want to sit in silence and listen, without sharing, then thats fine too.The floodgates are already open this moment has already been allowed in,just as it is ABOUT JEFF FOSTERJeff was voted #51 on Watkins Reviews 2012 list of the worlds 100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People and has published four books in over six languages. His latest book The Deepest Acceptance will be published in 2012 by Sounds True.Jeff speaks clearly and simply about the journey of awakening and self-realization. He presently holds meetings, retreats and private one-to-one sessions around the world, gently but directly pointing people back to the deep acceptance inherent in the present moment. He points to a discovery of who you really are, beyond all thoughts and judgments about yourself, even in the midst of the stress and struggle of modern day living and intimate relationships.His teaching style is direct and uncompromising and yet full of humanity, humor and compassion. He believes that freedom is everybodys birthright. He belongs to no tradition or lineage, and makes his teaching accessible to all.JEFF FOSTERS 2012 USA SCHEDULEWe rely nearly 100% on word of mouth.
