Forgiveness as a Cure

Anubhuti Meditation and Retreat Center 820 Bel Marin Keys Blvd USA

Day Retreat

10 am to 5 pm

We often think about forgiveness in relation to another.  However, while forgiveness helps relationships, the first to benefit is myself.
As we walk through life, we sometimes find stones in our path – or situations create a ditch in it. The ditches and the stones make us weary. Forgiveness is to flatten out the ground, so that our path going forward is smoother.
This day retreat will bring you to an understanding of how to truly love, and how to make forgiveness final. Participants will receive practical information to help them begin the process of letting go of pain that comes from holding on to the past and use the virtue of love to facilitate the process of forgiveness.

  • Learn how to stop the old video from the past from playing in our minds over and over again. Our own thoughts and feelings bring the pain into the present.  This pain adds a stone to our path.
  • Understand and acknowledge negative feelings and counteract them.  Once we understand them, we can move on to freeing ourselves from resentment.
  • Discover how forgiveness leads to healthier relationships, greater psychological and spiritual wellbeing and higher self-esteem.  

Forgiveness means allowing everyone to progress. There is no better investment of time and effort than to free your hearts to love.
