Forgiveness is often misunderstood, sorely underused, yet is an essential integral life practice. Scientific studies confirm the multiple stress-reducing, wellbeing-enhancing benefits of forgiveness, but equally fascinating is our resistance to it and our reluctance to practice it.
In this workshop, we’ll explore what forgiveness is, and arguably more importantly, what it isn’t. What are the potential benefits of forgiveness? What are the biggest obstacles in our way and how do we navigate them? Why do we seem to prefer the joys of harbouring our resentment to the freedom of forgiveness? And how can our forgiveness be an act of amnesty for humanity?
You will have the opportunity to engage with some deep shadow work in the form of your resentments, and learn the seven-step Forgiveness Made Easy process.
You don’t need any particular spiritual belief to be able to forgive and this is not a spiritual bypass approach, either. Using a modified version of Wilber’s 3-2-1 shadow process, as a forgiveness ritual, we fully acknowledge the reality of our past experience and our reaction to it, and through the *superpower* of forgiveness, come to a place of peace with the past.
Bill Gates had a vision of a computer on every desk. I have a vision of forgiveness in every heart. Help forgiveness become the new mindfulness… and together, let’s become the (r)evolution of peace.
