"Anywhere but here, anything but this."

Many know teacher and author Jeff Foster as a living example of joyful presence. But he wasn't always this way.

"From my earliest childhood to my mid-twenties," Jeff recalls, "I struggled with depression. I was certain that there was something deeply wrong with me. That on a basic level, I was incomplete, damaged, and desperately longing to rest."

In this audio session, he shares the insights that changed everything for him, and that have helped thousands who've found themselves feeling abandoned, lost, and somehow broken. With gentle guidance, and simple questions, Sacred As You Are explores:

  • Depression's call to return to the miracle of who you are, in this moment
  • Why you are not your feelings or thoughts, but a "field of permission" as vast as the sky that can hold all storms
  • If you're out of willpower, energy, or hope, can you just be curious?
  • How doubt and confusion can be your greatest allies, and more

"This program is not intended to fix you or make you happier or give you profound answers," notes Jeff. "It's simply an invitation to discover that your sorrow, pain, and grief, everything that feels so wrong, are the parts of you that most long to be held. And that the rest you seek is here with you, right now."

Original and inspiring

Jeff Foster goes to the heart of the simplicity of the awakened mind that is accessible to all of humanity. In this arena of permission, depression is but one facet of the array of thoughts and feelings that arise in each moment, and JF clearly demonstrates how to defuse the fears and anxieties which may beset us.

I would like to see this teaching reformulated for teenagers. The rate of teenage suicide in affluent countries is high and increasing. Because the teaching is direct and devoid of 'spiritual mystique' it could be suited to teenagers.

I myself felt really calm and reassured after listening to it.
