Publisher's Summary

Out of Suffering and into What Has Already Been Allowed
How can we bring an effortless yes to this moment? How do we stop running from “the mess of life”—our predicaments, our frustrations, even our search for liberation—and start flowing with all of it?
In small venues throughout the UK and Europe, a young teacher named Jeff Foster is quietly awakening a new generation of spiritual inquirers to the experience of abiding presence and peace in our ever-shifting world. His informal gatherings, blogs, and “kitchen-table video posts” have created a rising tide of interest in his teachings.
With The Deepest Acceptance, Jeff Foster invites us to discover the ocean of who we are: An awareness that has already allowed every wave of emotion and experience to arrive.
While Jeff delightfully admits the irony of an audio program to convey something that is beyond words to teach, here he confirms his ability to guide us in unexpected new ways to a space of absolute acceptance and joy, no matter what’s happening in our lives.
Those who enjoy spoken-word teachings will find this original audio edition of Jeff Foster’s book especially engaging. Here, he guides us in the spirit of his spontaneous talks and dialogs, into the direct experience of deepest acceptance.
Candid, thoughtful, humorous—and deeply compassionate toward those searching for a way out of suffering—this refreshing new luminary inspires us to stop trying to “do” acceptance … and start falling in love with “what has already been allowed.”

"Wise, spacious, and loving. Teachings that can free the heart." (Jack Kornfield, author of A Lamp in the Darkness and A Path With Heart)
"There is a transmission in this book: an alive, compassionate presence that invites awakening right here, this very moment, no matter what is going on in our lives." (Tara Brach, PhD, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge)
"A beautifully written guide to the fearlessness and simplicity of living fully immersed in each moment of our lives. The Deepest Acceptance rings with the power and authenticity of Jeff Foster's deeply felt, deeply lived wisdom. His affirmation of life and compassion for the full range of human experience is a much needed contribution." (Judith Blackstone, PhD, author of Belonging Here and The Intimate Life)

This is one of three books to end the spiritual search

Read this book. Read "The disappearance of the universe " and read "The unterhered soul"

Combine the knowledge of these three books, and end your spiritual search.

Everything else is just the carrot on the stick

Probably reflects on me

I know most of his listeners loved this book, based on the stars, but I found it to be repetitive and not very engaging. I got the whole idea of being the ocean and not the waves, but it didn’t resonate that much for me, so the repetition of this idea (I hung in there for six chapters) was tiresome. I wouldn’t recommend listening to this while driving, either, as the author’s voice was a bit hypnotic.

Acceptance

I love listening to Jeff because I start to feel what he describes. A deep acceptance of all the waves that appear in the vast ocean. This is a wonderful feeling of safety-when the argument against what is arising is dropped.

Not for mental health issues

Whilst I understand the meaning it never covers how to accept the issues for bipolar depression, why does it take over the whole ocean and not just affects of the waves

loved it

The teaching of this podcast is very deep but very simple. It does go on for a bit in circles, but that's necessary for the mind to break out of its stubborn trance. I would of enjoyed hearing more about overcoming trauma but one can apply the teaching in even accepting the pain of a traumatic experience and accepting the inability to know how to heal the trauma too.
