Forgiveness

Workshop Teacher: 
Workshop Description: 

Our heart pulses thousands of times every day, pumping blood through our system, giving life to our organism. Waves of emotional energy flood us daily. Sometimes we find our life force uplifted by surges of feeling, other times resistance shuts us down.

What if any emotion could be experienced as enlivening? What if we knew how to harness the strong forces of our emotions to fuel our forgiveness and compassion? This is essential in relationships with people who irritate, disappoint or hurt us. There's a bridge between anger and forgiveness called empathy. Empathy requires our willingness to stand in someone else’s shoes and look through their eyes. This is the act of a courageous heart.

This workshop is devoted to finding movement where our hearts have frozen, and more peace with those we've turned from.
