Forgiveness—whether forgiving someone, asking forgiveness from others, or seeking to forgive ourselves—is a subtle, intricate, personal, and ultimately liberating journey.
Too often equated with complacency, forgiveness is one of life’s greatest challenges. Yet it offers immense rewards, bringing with it peace, happiness, and freedom.
In this workshop, we explore forgiveness as a quality aligned with the wisdom of impermanence, the science of happiness, and the greatest expression of compassion toward ourselves. Our guides on this journey are among the nation’s leading teachers in the field of forgiveness: Sharon Salzberg, Frederic Luskin, Jennifer Thompson-Cannino, and Ronald Cotton.
They guide us in proven steps to forgiveness, including meditation, guided imagery, journal writing, and storytelling. We also learn how practicing forgiveness can improve our health by lowering blood pressure, decreasing the stress hormone cortisol, and relieving symptoms of depression.
