The Liberated Heart

Finding Freedom through Forgiveness

A 4-Week Journey | August 2024

The Liberated Heart: Finding Freedom through Forgiveness

A 4-Week Immersion | August 8th, 15th, 22nd & 29th

This 4-Week immersive program is an opportunity to dive deep into the essence of forgiveness and discover how meeting past hurts with compassion can liberate your heart. There's a difference between rudimentary forgiveness and liberating forgiveness. Liberating Forgiveness has the power to heal our hearts and change our lives forever. This kind of forgiveness goes beyond simply saying "I forgive." Through a curated journey of insightful teachings, guided meditations, reflective exercises, and community discussions, you'll discover the healing power of forgiveness, while cultivating emotional resilience and inner peace. 

The Largest-EVER study on Forgiveness was released last year and the science is clear: Forgiveness leads to decreased levels of anxiety and depression, and has a significant impact on our physical, mental, and spiritual health, as well as our relationships, personally, professionally and societally. At a time when humanity feels deeply broken and divided, Liberating Forgiveness is a powerful medicine, for our own health, the health of our families, relationships, and the world.

 

In this 4-week journey we will explore:

  • The Power of Liberating Forgiveness 

  • Overcoming the Myths & Obstacles to Forgiveness

  • Practices for Self-Forgiveness

  • Processes for Forgiving Others, even Difficult People

  • How Forgiveness Unleashes Greater Compassion in the World

Join us for a deeply transformative journey into the lived-experience of compassion and forgiveness.
