Please Note: This retreat is offered online only. We invite you to try this creative form of practice as we take care of one another and respond skillfully to COVID-19.
Life is complex as we all have come to experience over the last 2 years. One of the opportunities that has become evident is the benefits that can be gained from the awareness of Forgiveness.
Embracing that insight and engaging with Forgiveness practices; no matter the Trauma, Loss, Grief, or Anger, will move us forward in our journey towards liberation.
The practice of Forgiveness can offer freedom from the challenges and the ramifications of being held in “bondage” to a person (including ourselves), circumstance or condition created by not forgiving. Starting from where we are, we can cultivate the possibilities of living into our fullest potential.
We are invited to bring our courage to explore and cultivate the opening of our hearts and minds. The intention is to investigate – even in small ways – a practice that can be experienced as difficult. The aspiration is not to achieve perfection in Forgiveness, but rather, a life which is more and more free from suffering and full with the potential for joy.
We will explore the practices of Forgiveness and Letting Go, with the primary supports of Mindfulness, Kindness, Compassion, Equanimity and Gratitude.
All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org.
