For many of us, feelings of deficiency are right around the corner. It doesn’t take much--just hearing of someone else’s accomplishments, being criticized, getting into an argument, making a mistake at work--to make us feel that we are not okay. Beginning to understand how our lives have become ensnared in this trance of unworthiness is our first step toward reconnecting with who we really are and what it means to live fully. —from Radical Acceptance “Believing that something is wrong with us is a deep and tenacious suffering,” says Tara Brach at the start of this illuminating book. This suffering emerges in crippling self-judgments and conflicts in our relationships, in addictions and perfectionism, in loneliness and overwork—all the forces that keep our lives constricted and unfulfilled. Radical Acceptance offers a path to freedom, including the day-to-day practical guidance developed over Dr. Brach’s twenty years of work with therapy clients and Buddhist students. Writing with great warmth and clarity, Tara Brach brings her teachings alive through personal stories and case histories, fresh interpretations of Buddhist tales, and guided meditations. Step by step, she leads us to trust our innate goodness, showing how we can develop the balance of clear-sightedness and compassion that is the essence of Radical Acceptance. Radical Acceptance does not mean self-indulgence or passivity. Instead it empowers genuine change: healing fear and shame and helping to build loving, authentic relationships. When we stop being at war with ourselves, we are free to live fully every precious moment of our lives.

A Nautilus Better Books for A Better World Silver Medalist “If you’re at the end of your relationship rope, reach for Radical Acceptance.” —Elle In this “warm, honest approach to prioritizing your partner and creating true happiness in your relationship” (John Gray, PhD, author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus), the founder and CEO of YourTango, the #1 online destination for relationships, with fifteen-million monthly visitors, provides a refreshing new approach to romantic partnerships, grounded in the importance of unconditional love. Loving the lovable parts of your partner is easy. He’s funny, charming, smart, successful, and kind. He’s perfect. Except for when he is not. Like when he is late. Or short-tempered. Or lazy. Or he’s incorrectly loaded the dishwasher (again). Maybe he feels like the most frustrating person on the planet. Or maybe you’re simply not feeling heard or seen. Or loved enough. It’s these proverbial unlovable parts that make loving all of him so tough. But imagine if you let go of your itch to fix, judge, improve, or control your partner. Imagine if you replaced judgement with compassion and empathy. Tremendous empowerment and liberation come from loving someone—and being loved—for who we really are. This practice is called Radical Acceptance. Whether you’re looking for Mr. Right or are already with him, this is your powerful five-step guide to attaining life’s ultimate prize: unconditional love. You’ll learn how to increase your emotional resilience, feel more confident, determine whether you’re settling, quiet those doubt-filled voices in your head, get out of that endless cycle of dead-end dates, reduce conflict, and build a deeply fulfilling, affirming relationship—all through highly actionable advice. Best of all, you will discover how amazing it feels to have your heart expanded by an abundance of love and compassion for your partner and yourself. Featuring compelling stories for real-life couples and insights from the foremost thought leaders and researchers in brain science, sexuality, psychotherapy, and neurobiology, Radical Acceptance illustrates that embracing your partner for exactly who they are will lead to a more harmonious relationship—and provide an unexpected path to your own personal transformation.

How can we bring peace to the inner wars that are in the way of having the life we want? For more than 30 years now, Ann Weiser Cornell has been exploring, teaching, and writing about the mysteries of emotional process, including the paradox of how we become more whole by acknowledging our parts, how the most despised places in us contain our greatest treasure, and how the body's felt sense, held in a compassionate state of Presence, is the key to change. Now her key writings have been brought together in one place, freshly edited for this volume, with four new articles offering Ann's leading-edge work. All are accessible both to the seeker of personal change and to the professional who wants to be more effective working with others.
This is a subversive book. It won't lead you to social or political revolt, but it will suggest overthrowing all of your current ideas about psychotherapy, personal growth and self-help. In the process, it will cause you to re-evaluate almost all of the therapies, techniques and books about self-help which are already out there. How does it do this? By teaching something so radically different, and so radically powerful, that the challenging becomes inevitable. What makes Radical Acceptance so different is that your 'fixer' is powerless: no matter how hard you try, you can never fix yourself. And yet you already know this, even while protesting that it can't be true. "I've changed! I'm not the person I used to be!" "I can change! I just have to try harder!" "If I stop trying to change, my life will fall apart." "If I don't fix myself, no one will love me!" Put aside your fixer, as he or she isn't useful. Instead, begin to see your life from a whole new light: the light of Radical Acceptance.
This volume examines the role of mindfulness principles and practices in a range of well-established cognitive and behavioral treatment approaches. Leading scientist-practitioners describe how their respective modalities incorporate such nontraditional themes as mindfulness, acceptance, values, spirituality, being in relationship, focusing on the present moment, and emotional deepening. Coverage includes acceptance and commitment therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, integrative behavioral couple therapy, behavioral activation, and functional analytic psychotherapy. In every chapter, the authors describe their clinical methods and goals, articulate their theoretical models, and examine similarities to and differences from other approaches both inside and outside behavior therapy.
You want to live your life to the fullest without being afraid of what other people may think of your choices and decisions? You want to accept yourself for who you are while being completely focused on your positive sides, on your positive traits and on your inner potential and strengths? You want to be an imperfectionist who lives fearlessly? If you find yourself having these questions, you are definitely in the right place. While being a perfectionist may bring some good things, boost your motivation sometimes and make you keep going, being a perfectionist has more negative sides than positive. Individuals who are perfectionists are more stressed out, more frustrated and angrier, as every single failure they come across affects them deeply even in cases when these failures are almost meaningless. On the other hand, being an imperfectionist means that you truly accept yourself with all of your both positive and negative traits, that you focus on your positive traits without letting those negative traits stop you from succeeding in any way. Being an imperfectionist also means that you get to accomplish more with less stress, that you take simplicity with all of its beauty and use it in favor of making your life great. Being an imperfectionist also means that you practice radical acceptance, that you embrace what life has to offer and that you live fearlessly to the fullest. Inside You Will Discover What are emotions and why they matter What are dark emotions and their connection to your inner peace How your emotions affect both your emotional and physical health What is emotional health and what are major factors affecting your emotional health What does practicing radical acceptance mean How to actually achieve and maintain your emotional well-being What you gain when you become an imperfectionist The importance of connection, compassion and courage How to love and respect yourself and how to embrace all of your imperfections Setting specific goals and success motivations And much, much more... Get this book NOW, learn how to embrace your imperfections, boost your self-confidence and finally live your life to the fullest!
