Erin is wrapping up her Labor Day vacation, so we will bring you one of our most listened to episodes on Radical Acceptance. Radical acceptance is a skill in Dialectical Behavior Therapy) that teaches us to fully accept our present feelings or situation without judgment. It is what allows us to experience pain, which is unavoidable, without suffering, which is optional. Radical acceptance does not mean we approve of unwanted behaviors or situations. Rather, it allows us to see things for exactly how they are, and once we can do that, we know where to make changes. A meditation practice starts at 6:57.

Our practice has openings! If you are interested in DBT, or speaking with a therapist, reach out to us: You can also email me at
