How To Be Radically Loved with Rosie Acosta

Meet Rosie Acosta

Rosie Acosta has studied yoga and mindfulness for over 20 years and taught for over a decade. She hosts a weekly conversational wellness podcast, Radically Loved. Rosie has traveled all over the world, leading workshops, retreats, and yoga teacher trainings. She’s been featured in Yoga Journal, Well + Good, Forbes, and The New York Post. She lives in Los Angeles. YOU ARE RADICALLY LOVED is her first book. 

Rosie Acosta is such a powerful example of what’s possible when you make up your mind to change your life, regardless of circumstances. After being arrested for trying to steal a police car in her teens, she realized the direction she was headed was not one of happiness, contentment, or any kind of joy. Unlike many brown and black teens who end up staying in the system, she realized she had to get out. What ensued was both courageous and miraculous. A friend of Rosie’s mother recommended meditation as a way to cope with stress and anxiety. She figured she’d give it a try and started to notice internal changes for the better. That’s when Rosie realized she had to excommunicate herself from her friends — childhood friends she had grown up with on the streets in LA when gangs were running rampant. 

Getting Out Of Trouble and Chaos

Rosie started to get herself in planned detention to go to the library to read books like ‘The Art of Happiness by the Dalai Lama and other inspiring works that would help begin the process of shifting her inner beliefs and outer world. She found the courage to leave friends who had been like family so that she could begin to find out who she really is and be the creative, loving, kind person she dreamt of being. Through meditation, yoga, and readings by Paramahansa Yogananda, started small cracks of change that led to an entirely new life direction.

The Power of Compassion

Today, Rosie Acosta speaks to high schools all over the US about how they have the autonomy, agency, and self-guidance to trust in themself and greater support. She teaches them about being Radically Loved and the practices that can change your life. The root of loving change is compassion for yourself and others.  

Radically Loved, Defined

Radically Loved is about stepping into powerful innate energy. Using this energy as a conduit, you realize that it is an ever-flowing love, eternal, never-ending guidance of love. In a difficult moment, the most radical act of love is to be fully present with where you are, befriending yourself and your feelings. It’s about giving yourself the nourishment you need and being kind to yourself. This is something to practice daily, and the more you can cultivate powerful compassion for yourself, the more you can do this with others. 

Final Thoughts

We ended with an awesome heart flare…Rosie reminds you to stay encouraged, keep writing, doing the things you feel called to do even if others might not seem to pay attention. Someone out there needs your message, to be radically loved, just like she did when she was given a suggestion to try meditation. Keep going, and don’t get discouraged!
