There is nothing more fundamental to happiness and wellbeing than increasing self-acceptance and developing a warm and friendly relationship with yourself.

Do you feel like your own best friend? Are you loving and accepting of whatever you are feeling, thinking and needing? Are you able to witness your own joy and pain, and be your faithful ally?


We are our closest companion in this life. Why not be our own best friend?


If not us who, if not now when?  


The human condition is such that most of us arrive at adulthood with strong fear- and survival-based conditioning and no small amount of insecurity, inadequacy and self-doubt.


This is just the way it is. It doesn’t need to stay this way.


Through the liberating power of mindfulness-awareness meditation and by simply witnessing and gradually disidentifying with our habitual patterns of self-criticism and negative self-talk, we can literally rewire our brains and develop lasting access to joy, peace of mind and powerful resilience.


It just takes a little practice.  


In this mini-course on Mindful Self-Acceptance, renowned meditation teacher, Acharya Fleet Maull, PhD, will guide you step by step in beginning your own journey toward wholeness, happiness and wellbeing. The course includes four guided, downloadable meditations with complete transcripts and accompanying study and reflection handouts.  


The course is self-paced so you can learn on your own time and schedule. A few minutes a day will make a huge difference.


Begin your journey now with Fleet Maull as your personal guide and mentor.
