Online: The Art of Self-Forgiveness
with Bodhipaksa
Thursday, September 16th 2021 | 7:00pm – 8:30pm ET


Many of us suffer because we can’t forgive ourselves. Maybe we hurt someone in the past, or allowed someone to get hurt. Maybe we missed an opportunity, or made a bad choice.

And we just can’t let go of it.

The longer it lingers, the more regret festers. It’s like an infected wound that never heals, and that has toxic effects on our entire being. Eventually it can harden into self-hatred — the belief that we, in our very core, are bad or unworthy.

There’s no way to instantly forgive ourselves. It takes time and practice. But on this evening with Bodhipaksa we’ll explore several powerful tools, drawn from Buddhist teachings, to help us let go, move on, and be more at peace with ourselves.
