Forgiveness as Spiritual Practice
Life brings to each of us, experiences of anger, fear, hurt, and pain. What we do with these is up to each individual. Choosing to practice forgiveness can bring healing and inner peace. Forgiveness work helps us reconnect with ourselves and others in more loving ways. Research shows that it’s great for our physical health, too!
Come, join with others who are willing to take some steps along this spiritual path. Focus is on tools and techniques, not on therapy. Workshop will include presentations, quiet worship, guided meditation, practicing techniques, and group and individual time.
