Self-acceptance is one of our most difficult challenges, no matter how much meditation or therapy we’ve engaged in. In this free, 12-week video event series, I invited 23 psychologists, psychotherapists, teachers, and visionaries to speak with my friend and longtime colleague, Tami Simon, to explore the areas of self-love, self-acceptance, shame, and creating a holding environment of kindness for ourselves and others.

No matter how much spiritual practice, self-improvement, or therapy we’ve undertaken, there is one area where many of us still find ourselves challenged every day: self-acceptance. It seems all too easy to fall into the trap of judging ourselves as inadequate, finding fault with our achievements or our bodies, and believing our self-critical inner voices that insist we’ll never measure up to who we ought to be. Is there a solution?

We created The Self-Acceptance Project to find out.

In this FREE online video event series, Tami will speak each week with two contemporary luminaries in the fields of spirituality, psychology, and creativity. Together they will explore the questions around self-acceptance—and investigate how we can overcome the difficulties of embracing who we are. Where do our self-critical voices come from? Can we silence them, or is there a better way to deal with them? Can we be motivated to change and excel while still accepting ourselves as we are? Why is it often so much easier to feel compassion and forgiveness towards others than towards ourselves?

The Self-Acceptance Project was created to offer you insights, practices, and strategies for living with a sense of your own fundamental worthiness. In this 12-week free video series, you’ll hear from a wide variety of thinkers and teachers as they share their stories and wisdom about self-acceptance, including:

Brené Brown, Geneen Roth, Parker Palmer, Harville Hendrix, Tara Brach, Mark Nepo, Stephen Hayes, Rick Hanson, Kelly McGonigal, Kristin Neff, Sharon Salzberg, Robert Augustus Masters, Bruce Tift, Judith Blackstone, Colin Tipping, Erin Olivo, Karla McLaren, Judith Blackstone, Raphael Cushnir, Jeff Foster, Reggie Ray, Jay Earley, Friedemann Schaub, and Cheri Huber.
