In the process of living, it is inevitable that sooner or later we will all experience a variety of hurts and challenges. Are you holding on to a grudge against someone? Do you feel resentful towards a person or group of people who has hurt you? Do you want to help yourself or others find forgiveness or freedom from hurting? Do you want to strengthen your “forgiveness attitude” so you can better address the small slights and bigger hurts in life?

In this workshop, we’ll explore ways to reduce hurt and helplessness, let go of anger, and find more peace. Research has shown that practices related to forgiveness and letting go of hurt can lead to better health, increased energy and clarity, more satisfying relationships, more effectiveness and a greater sense of peace. This workshop provides practical tools and strategies to resolve past hurts, build confidence in ourselves, and live fully.
