Whether it is the betrayals, disappointments, and abandonments experienced in our interpersonal lives, the injustices and tragedies perpetrated in society, or the various ways we have failed to live up to our own or others expectations of ourselves, forgiveness practice can begin to loosen the ropes binding us to the past. It can allow us to come more fully into our hearts and can be a catalyst that transforms bitterness, anger, and grief into compassion and lovingkindness.
In the course, we'll explore the relationship between forgiveness practice and the Brahma Viharas, especially lovingkindness, compassion and equanimity. We will practice forgiveness towards ourselves, asking forgiveness of another, and exploring the practice of forgiving another.
*Teacher support/dana is included in the price of the course.
All scholarships have been awarded for this course.
