FORGIVENESS…is love & compassion in action!
The central point of FORGIVENESS practice is that we can’t forgive without first opening to our pain (how angry & hurt we still feel towards others &/ how guilty & regretful we still feel towards ourselves). Equally crucial is realizing that we have continually harden our “hard feelings” (anger, hurt, guilt, shame, etc.) in the attempt to protect ourselves against pain, but overtime we may develop bitterness, resentment & hatred which are destructive emotions. One way to transform these destructive emotions is to identify the “soft feelings/unmet needs” behind the “hard feelings”.
Expanding research demonstrates that mindfulness & self-compassion are strongly associated with emotional resilience where the practice of self-compassion gives us the strength to open to pain & the practice of mindfulness supports us with balanced awareness & realization of what we are experiencing.
This brief workshop is designed for anyone who is interested to explore FORGIVENESS practice anchored in mindfulness & self-compassion practices & for past participants of mindfulness &/ compassion based programs to revisit what they have learned.
