Join us for a six-week contemplative study group based on the recently published Radical Responsibility® by Acharya Fleet Maull. 

Radical Responsibility is a transformative approach to realizing personal freedom and creating authentic relationships.

Radical Responsibility is based on the choice to take 100% ownership for each and every circumstance we face in life, including those we can see we had some role in creating as well as those that just seem to happen.  We do so solely to focus our time and energy where we can actually make a difference. This is self-empowerment, not self-blame.

The book draws clear distinctions between genuine responsibility and the shame-based blaming that dominates our culture. We will explore the ways we give our power and freedom away and compromise our authenticity in everyday life.  The class will consist of exercises, dyads, and group discussions.

Topics will include exploring our limiting core beliefs, our early childhood conditioning, Karpman’s Drama Triangle® and how to get off the drama triangle, the neuroscience of our conditioned reactions, radical responsibility, the nature of circumstances, the empowerment triangle, and the power of compassion.

Blending psychological models of behavior with meditation practice and the view of basic goodness, this book is a great support for one's spiritual practice, whatever that might be.
