About this item


About the Book

With The Deepest Acceptance, Jeff Foster shares his most foundational teaching: despite all of its struggle and strife, life itself is what we seek. With great warmth and compassion, Foster points the way to an uncompromising and unlimited acceptance of "all that is, as it is."

Book Synopsis

So much of our lives are spent running--from pain, from vulnerability, and from everyday struggle. Jeff Foster understands that sense of pursuit. After years of depression and illness, he came to realize that what he had been seeking had been available to him all along--he needed only to shed his resistance and step into the limitless ocean of the present moment. In Jeff's words, "The armor we wear to protect ourselves from the full experience of life does not really protect us--it just keeps us comfortably numb."

In The Deepest Acceptance, Jeff provides readers with a series of insights intended to help strip away that armor and embrace life now, as it is and as you are. This warm, humorous, and candid offering invites us to stop trying to "do" acceptance and start falling in love with "what has already been allowed."

Review Quotes

"Jeff Foster is an honest seeker who has unraveled the many trappings of seeking through his faithfulness to the humble ground of being here now, and his book is a gentle and helpful companion on the journey." --Mark Nepo, author of Staying Awake and Seven Thousand Ways to Listen

"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

"The Deepest Acceptance is a multifaceted spiritual gem. Every page transparently illuminates our real nature as naturally accepting, centerless awareness. Jeff has performed a great service in revealing awareness as the already-present source for living our lives in the most loving and meaningful way possible. I am immensely grateful to Jeff for bringing forth the essence of his teaching with such great power, love, and sensitivity. A timeless classic through which numberless people will connect with the source of ultimate fulfillment." --Peter Fenner, PhD, author of Radiant Mind and The Edge of Certainty

"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

"Wise, spacious, and loving. Teachings that can free the heart." --Jack Kornfield, author of A Lamp in the Darkness and A Path with Heart.

"This book is a constant invitation to not leave spiritual awakening where it is often left, as a search for experiences, a way to avoid the messiness of life, or some sort of head trip. It invites you into every nook and cranny of life's experience, leaving no stone unturned." --Scott Kiloby, author of Reflections of the One Life: Daily Pointers to Enlightenment and Natural Rest for Addiction: A Revolutionary Way to Recover Through Presence

"The Deepest Acceptance is the story of a merciful awareness, which offers us the heart's inborn destination we were born to discover. Love is the highest form of acceptance. Judgment is the mechanics of non-acceptance." --Stephen Levine, author of A Year to Live

"Written with warmth, humility, and a gentle but penetrating honesty, Jeff invites the reader to explore those places in themselves that they would most want to avoid and to find there, at their heart, the very thing they were seeking. However, long after the words have faded from memory, the intelligence and love with which they are written remain behind, and that is the true gift of this beautiful book." --Rupert Spira, author of Presence: The Art and Peace of Happiness

"Jeff has achieved something wonderful with this honest and insightful book--something that benefits all of us and sheds much-needed light on the mystery we call life." --Stephen Gawtry, managing editor, Watkins Mind Body Spirit magazine

"Throughout The Deepest Acceptance, Jeff Foster offers sentence after sentence that penetrate the mind and heart in a fresh, thrilling, life-changing way." --Raphael Cushnir, author of The One Thing Holding You Back and Surfing Your Inner Sea
