The Seven Pillars of Forgiveness

“Where there is no forgiveness, wounds cannot heal.”

The pervasiveness of the lack of forgiveness of self and others is one of the biggest secrets of the human race.  We walk around looking like we have it together and yet, almost every human being struggles with forgiveness issues during the course of their lives.  For example, a mother who cannot forgive herself for mistreating her child; a person suffering from a painful divorce and inability to forgive one’s ex-partner; someone unable to resolve a  grinding resentment toward a friend or co-worker; or groups that continually recycle historical conflicts.

Some can find it hard to understand the extraordinary gift of forgiveness.  And yet, when a person is approaching their deathbed, often their greatest fear is not the physical pain, but the emotional pain of what they have not been able to resolve, forgive, let go of.

But our purpose as humans is not just too forever replay our ancestors’ levels of consciousness and response, but to walk a path of refinement – a path that leads towards kindness, understanding, forbearance…  But it is not easy sometimes to leave history behind; to let go of wounds from the past. This work on forgiveness is to help us humans walk that path of finding a better way; to bring deep healing and spiritual uplift.  Forgiveness is not the end in itself – but it is the necessary work needed to walk through a door that liberates us into being truly human and being able to be agents of something higher; of the future; of refinement

People often ask “How do I actually start the process of forgiveness?  Are there any practical things I can do?”

This weekend retreat offers profound access into our ability to forgive, through a depth of content and experiential processes – connected with

The Seven Pillars of Forgiveness:  Understanding, Freedom, Remedy, Warmth, Enhancement, Hope and Continuance.

The Art of Well-Being: The Body Keeps the Score

Well-being is a skill that can be learned and cultivated; no different than learning how to play the violin. The intimate link between well-being and meditation has been carefully studied by Western scientists for decades now, revealing the potent benefits of developing the ability to be present. The traditional, tried-and-true meditation practices, however, fail to engage many modern Americans.

Friday, March 8: The Body Keeps the Score

What does it mean to meditate with the body? So much of our past history, particularly trauma, finds its way into the fibers of our bodies. We will learn about the suffering associated with disembodiment and the multiple benefits of changing our relationships with our physical being through meditation. We will experience the results that derive from developing a profound awareness of the body as opposed to our habitual abiding in our heads with our thoughts. The practices will be drawn from Reginald Ray’s Touching Enlightenment: Finding Realization in the Body.

Date & Time: Friday, March 8, 2019 from 10am to 3pm
