Life is complex, many times not very clear, and sometimes devastating, in its path towards Freedom. Forgiveness is a huge topic. It can bring up so much around injury, pain, and trauma that we have experienced in the Past - both as individuals and as communities. Our inability to let go sometimes numbs our lives in the Present, and it can limit how we live into the Future. If we don't start somewhere, does that mean we will never have the opportunity to try and live into all the possibilities of our fullest potential? We are invited to bring our courage to explore and cultivate the continuing opening of our hearts and minds. The intention is to explore - even in small ways - a most difficult practice, not to achieve perfection in Forgiveness, but to live the life that we vision for ourselves - a life which is more and more free from suffering. That would be enough.

We will explore the practices of Forgiveness and Letting Go, with the primary supports of Mindfulness, Kindness, Compassion, and Equanimity to provide the most expansive landscape in restoring and renewing our beautifully awakening lives.
